what can I feed to a 7 month old?

so far when we've been out gathering free food, I've only fed fruits to my daughter to keep her quiet on the trips. but is there anything else I can give to her to chew on? she's 7 months old and needs stuff to help with teething- that's preferably free!!

thanks.
