Don't worry about it too much. She is only 9 months old which means she drinks plenty of milk and gets most nutrients from it. It's important to start introducing new flavours now but don't worry if she doesn't seem to be into new food - I've read somewhere that it takes about 15 tries for babies to get used to the taste of new food (so keep persevering;- ) Have you looked into baby-led weaning. Look it up if you haven't already. I would advise to put little chunks of food before her and let her try it. Sometimes trying to feed them actually works against you as they like to explore themselves.
Good Luck (and again, don't worry if she's drinking enough milk and not too skinny it's fine)

I agree with babydino, my 8 month old is exactly the same. I became paranoid about him only liking sweet things. In the end I stopped worrying, made sure I didn't give him anything too sweet, and just kept trying. Eventually grated mild cheddar wasthe first thing he began to like, then I added some grated carrot to it, which worked. you will get there in the end, they can run rings around us even at such a young age.
