  • very common for them to change tastes. just try them again in a few weeks. move on to new things she didn't like before. their tastebuds are growing and developing and their appetites are changing. The teething might also have something to do with it.

  • It is normal. Food before one is just for fun not nutrition. She might be in pain, might be bored, might think they taste bad and the texture novelty is no longer enough to overcome the flavor, it might be too mushy, she might want to feed herself. You can read this too:

  • yeah when my son is teething really bad he likes his food less, but once it stops hurting him so much, he starts to like it alot more. but you also have to make sure it tastes good, i heat up the fruit & formula in a pan together and then pour it in the cereal, and save a little fruit plain. plus he likes it more if i make airplane and train noises when i feed him.
