I waited until 9mo with all three of mine. My Dr & friend said it is best to wait until they demand it, so rather then giving them food when the show "interest", we wait until they are upset when you won't give it to them. It made more sense to me as a mother, since young children are very grabby and will reach for & eat anything in sight, food or not. This way I knew that I wasn't misunderstanding exploration with feeding cues. I've heard many Dr's and nutritionists say Food before 1 is just for fun....they really don't need anything besides breastmilk to thrive until a year.
