I started my dd with cereal at 4 months and then went to veggies around 5 months. I was told to start with veggies and introduce all of them before you introduce fruits. Fruits are obviously a bit more tasty..so by starting with the veggies they really have nothing to compare it to..ya know. That seemed to work for my dd anyway..and I'll do that again with my next baby.
I gave her all of the baby cereals before I started with the veggies...rice, grain, barley...etc...
You really can't go wrong. Just make sure you wait 3-4 days until you introduce another food.

My baby is only 4.5 weeks, but in the "how to" book given out by my ped's office (it's written by the docs in the practice) it says that generally they have you start cereal at 3 months. Offer it at breakfast and again at suppertime (not bedtime although I will probably offer it at bedtime anyways lol). Then start veggies first at 4 months, followed by fruits at 4-5 months. I would think you'd be ok to start veggies at this point. Of course that's just my very inexperienced opinion! :)
