  • Choose you fruit. If it's naturally soft, mash it with a fork or cut it into bite size pieces. If it's hard, bake or steam, then mash or cut up.

  • have you tried other baby foods besides the fruits? She may just like veggies more, and that's fine, actually better :).

  • No more baby food. Maybe toddler foods?

  • Baby food is gross. Just give table foods that are mashed/softened.

  • I always just mashed regular fruit with the back of the fork, or diced it up small. Same with veggies, cook until soft than use the back of the fork to mash it.

  • Thanks for all th advice she loves all the veggies but its just fruits that make her shudder and gag but her pediatrician reamed us for not giving her fruit......we weren't going to force feed her something that makes her gag when she gobbles up vegetables and meats

  • i heard from a pediatric that the best time to introduce fruits to a baby is at the end of the 10th month,and that is because of sothing called "fructose intolerance" that might occur to the baby before that age,and might cause some stomachaches,i just did what i've been told,and i introduced fruits to my litte one when she was 10 months..i used to over-boil an apple till its very soft and mashh it with the back of the fork with a banana and 2 spoonfuls of yoghurt and just a very small amount of honey,and eh really loved it

  • that's actually good, b/c fruit has a lot of sugar. IF she likes veggie feed her lots veggie. I made all my baby food and my son loves it especially banana
