  • She's probably just bored. Try some chopped up fresh fruit.

  • She could be bored with the texture, flavor, or just not hungry.

  • My daughter is 9 months and is the exact same way. She will not eat any of the baby jarred food so i switched to mashing up her fresh foods. Try some fresh fruit or some fresh vegatables mashed up they are so much better than the jarred foods.

  • I have an 8 month old who will not eat
    shes on yoghurt and thats about it
    she only takes about a teaspoon at a time and if she gets anymore shes sick
    shes sick if we try her on new things, and have tried everything Tins, boxes, jars and home made
    my doc said stop until shes a year old
    Sorry I will keep trying dont let them see you getting worried as they will start to worry to they do pick up on these things and it will make it worse
    just offer what you are doing at the same time as your eating and when they say no no more just say ok if they are sick just clean them up saying o dear never mind
    my now 18 year old was just the same hes ok now eats what ever I put on his plate
    o they do like to worry us
