Try sitting him at table with the big people at meal time, and give him small amounts of what you are eating. Don't nurse him before. After mealtime, offer the *boob* lol, just keep doing this. Make it fun, and include him in the chatter around the table. Don't EVER say something is YUCKY or so and so doesn't like it- keep talking about how good it is, how healthy food makes your body grow, let him know what it can do for him!! More energy to play, grow, etc. You'd be surprised by how much he absorbing from his surroundings. Just keep mealtime fun and low pressure. Don't make him finish, or make a big deal out of his food- but PRAISE the heck out of any behavior you'd like to see repeated!!! Good luck- and as long as you are eating healthfully, he should be ok until he discovers how much fun food is!!
