    Default 1 yo refusing all fruit

    Hi,
    My DS just turned 1 and refuses to eat any kind of fruit. He has for ages, basically since we stopped puree's.

    I had a bit of luck with blueberries for a while but that no longer is either.

    Any advice, hints etc. Fruit is such a healthy easy snack, especially when out. I am sick of always giving cruskits, rice cakes and other snacks similar to that, when I would really just like to take some pieces of apple and pear with me.

    I just went and bought some fruit and have steamed..to make puree.. as I feel I need to get getting some fruit into him.

    TIA

    you could try buying some things from pouched (they are the same as the raffertys pouches but you fill them up yourself) and just put your own puree in them

    otherwise you could take cucumber slices or capsicum etc in place of when you would give fruit for a snack

    My son went through a stage where he really like frozen fruit (blueberries and raspberries from boxes, and mango that I froze).

    I agree with bennos mummy.. My DS went/is going through the stage where he didnt like vegetable or fruit.. they will over come it ...my DS now is eating all fruit but we still are having trouble with the vegetable... They will come around in there own time.

    Thanks, whereabouts do you get those fruit pouches you put your own fruit in?

    I wouldn't be concerned if he had eaten fruit before, but he has never eaten any fruit that isn't pureed. Not one chunk. I am sure in a few years he will eat it but its driving me batty

    My DD is still going through this stage and she's 2!! I rely on the Rafferty's Garden fruit squeezies as its the only thing I can get her to eat, she always wants one when we go shopping so we got up to Coles nearly every day and she sits in the trolley to have one. As long as she eats it I'm happy, I hate her fruit and veg refusal!

    What about starting with softer fruit (banana or mango etc) that you could squash up a bit in the bowl? Then gradually introduce the texture?

    Do you eat it with him? I would keep persisting ( as other pp have said) every night after dinner or as an afternoon snack cut up a few varieties of fruit and sit down and eat it with him, just keep offering and being positive about how yummy it is I bet after a while he will try some ! ( my friend tried this with her son, it took 3 weeks but one day he just picked up a strawberry and ate it, now he eats fruit salad every afternoon)

    Yep, I think I ate nearly 3 banana's once to get him to take the tiniest bite ever! We ate fruit in front of him, and he also has his little friends eating fruit in front of him as well. He puts in his mouth but just spits it out.

    He eats veges (potato, pumpkin, broccoli, cauliflower etc) so I guess that's something. Will just keep persisiting and keep on offering. Thanks
