Baby does not eat veggies

Charlie has not started solids yet, but I can imagine there will be foods he does not like. I think it's very important to offer your child as many options as possible. For the variety of flavor as well as the variety of nutrients each can provide. Living in Montana, we are limited in the types of foods available to us at certain times of the year (if we want them fresh) So I'm sure to can as much as I can during the growing season so that Charlie has plenty of variety all throughout the year.

I say keep at it! Food is a whole new world for your little one. If he doesn't like one, he may like it later on so don't lose hope! And if he really doesn't like a certain one that's okay :)

    lol don't remind me! I took mom to the salon today to get us both haircuts.. and I look back in the mirror at her holding him and I just can't believe how huge he is.. it's killin me.

    Sigh... But yes, we're waiting until 6 months to introduce anything solid-like. The pediatrician said some start at 4 months but he said it's also about Charlie showing interest, which I can't say he has yet. He kind of reaches for plates but he also reaches for his feet.. so yeah..lol

      Sweet veggies are always best to start with...especially if they are breast fed. Because breast milk is sweet so they are used to that. Then we try and give them these gross bitter veggies and they are like "where's the sweet stuff" lol I was lucky and T loves anything and everything he can get in his mouth...except green beans. He still won't eat them. I gave him broccoli and green beans tonight and he ate the broccoli and spit out the green beans lol

        Are you going to make your own baby food or attempt store bought?
