  • Have you tried mixing fruits & veggies in with the cereal? If not, I would talk to your child's Dr. about what her nutritional needs are at this stage in her life. Maybe they have some tricks to offer to get her to eat. GL

  • Yes, talk to the doctor. She should be eating a variety of foods by now. Table foods should have been introduced already. Any healthy food that she can mash in her mouth can be offered.

  • NO cows milk before age one!!! You need to ask the doc this...

  • I'd probably try gradually mixing in pureed or jarred baby food into the cereal until she was used to the taste, and also offer table food. Be sure to talk with her doctor. Good luck!
