It’s not good to continue giving smooth purees for too long or your baby may get lazy about chewing. When a baby chews food he exercises the same muscles he needs for speech development. Mashing makes a gradual transition to a slightly more lumpy texture for your baby and it’s a good idea to mash some root vegetables together with green vegetables and cheese.
