Ours LO seemed to eat anything & everything until he turned 1. Not sure why, but we have offered him plenty of varieties, although I have heard to keep it simple and not try to introduce more than one new thing at a time. Ours also had a hard time when he was teething, and has been teething non-stop since 8-9 months. There have been times that I thought he was living off milk, but really, even a few foods throughout the day is OK. I haven't seen any kids down at the bus stop sipping their sippy cups, and refusing food, LOL! Ours is 2 now, and is sometimes more willing to try a new thing, but he goes in phases. He's a very strong, growing, healthy boy, and all I can do is present him the food. Can't make him eat it or like it. I wouldn't want to be forced to eat something I didn't like. Try not to worry, like PP said, they won't starve themselves. Good luck!
