Do I have to do fruits now?

My DH is 7 months old and I am starting foods. I was wondering can I just stick to veggies or do I have to do both fruits and veggies?

  • At 7 months most babies are ready for a variety of foods. I started fruits and veggies all around the same time. i have always started my kids with fruits and they still liked the veggies just as much. I think it is an old wives tale that if you do fruit first they won't like veggies.

  • I did veggies first and did them for awhile, once I added fruits I just did alittle of those because babies naturally like the sweetness of them over the veggies.
