what veggies do babies tend to like best?

my dd likes sweet potatoes, but thats all the veggies she really will eat.

I tried carrots, i purree'd them, but she wont eat them...

i dont get her fruits all the time, that way she will be well balanced between fruits and veggies, but she just isnt eating anything but sweet potatoes...

  • try mashed potatoes, squash, get her baby food carrots, those tend to be a little sweeter than the ones we make on our own. hmmm, mine like peas too.

  • Im going through the same thing...I gave my daughter sweet potatos, and now that's all she likes. She did have carrots and peas afew times and enjoyed it, but now she wont even look at them...I have bought a squash and Im thinking of trying that soon.
    Have you tried avocado? Its techinically a fruit but its not sweet and is really healthy.

  • My DD lovessss sweet potatoes, squash and peas. Those were her 3 faves for a couple of months! Carrots took her awhile to even want to eat. I had to mix them with cereal (more cereal than carrots) until she would eat them by herself. Now she loves them too. But sweet potatoes, squash, and peas are always a huge hit for veggies.

    You could always try mixing the veggies with cereal or fruit to confuse her taste buds.

  • I know it's not a vege but avocado is great for the daughter who is one year old loooves spinach, brocolli florets with melted cheese, peas, green beans...however, she did NOT like any of these when they were pureed...she only likes them when I make them and let her feed herself. same with fruit...don't get the gerber ones...they're full of preservatives..just buy them, steam the heck out of them to soften them and cut them up into pieces.

  • My baby girl loves sweet potatoes, squash , carrots, green beans, and her mixed vegetables. She eats apples, orange-banana medley and Hawaiian delight and peaches. She's nine months and a good little eater.
