Picky son?

Ok. Im feeding my son solid foods. He loves mashed potatos & sweet potatos. He HATES everything else...Should I keep feeding him the baby foods or just stick w/ the two he likes?

  • Keep giving him the ones he will eat, try mixing a 2nd one on the spoon with it. More of the one he likes. Also look into the 2nd stages that have things added with the sweet potatoes. Like sweet potatoes and corn, etc.
    Keep trying, his tatebuds will change and babies preferences change all the time.

  • They say sometimes you have to introduce a food up to 10 times before a child will accept it. Just keep offering it. You can try mixing it with things he does like. But don't give up!!!
