My 6 month old eats wonderful at dinner time, around 6 , but wont eat lunch for me around 11-12. I know it's time for him to be eatting more baby foods during the day, so i've been trying to. He just wont eat. I give him lunch at the time i would give him a bottle,but he wont open his mouth,turns away or spits it out. He gets fussy if he's in the highchair to long so i end up giving him a bottle. When i feed him dinner he eats all of it with out a bottle. I don't understand why he wont eat at lunch time. Any ideas on how i can get him to eat??Answer Question

You can't. If he wants it he'll eat it. If you push it it will cause issues, possibly food aversion. Let it go. He's fine.
Though you could offer real food instead, Jar food isn't as tastey or interesting. Give him foods he can feed himself. Curiosity drives his food interest at that age. Offer bottle first, if he's not hungry he'll likely show more interest. If hungry he will just want to get down to business with milk.

If he doesn't want it, he doesn't need it. 6 mos is still young. Milk (breast or formula) is fine for most of the time. Solids are experimental, and not necessary yet.
