My 12 month old still eats baby food and cereal for breakfast and dinner, but I am slowly trying to give her regular foods instead. For dinner this evening, I baked a sweet potato, then mashed it with milk and just a hint of sugar. Then I mixed in a tablspoon of rice cereal. She only ate half, then refused to eat the rest. I felt a bit discouraged...
How often should I continue to offer the sweet potatoes (and any other new foods)? I am more than willing to continue with the baby food if that's what she likes, but I would rather she eat regular food, because it's cheaper. AND, I don't want her to go hungry.
ADD: She eats some table foods for lunch and snacks.
