In brief: Several

I find apple sauce (never juice), bananas, steamed rice, pasta noodles (macaronior spegetti) all good early foods that help a kids loose stools firm up.
Avoid all juiices or fatty foods until firmer stools return. Graham crackers and simple cerials are helpful as are bread products.
