    Default Baby fussy with food

    I was hoping someone may be able to help. My baby is 8 mo and enjoyed food when we got started, but for the past month he will only eat banana and weetbix a little bit of fruit (pear mostly) and custard. i try veges and he ries and clamps his mouth shut and then finally give him custard and he eats every little bit!! anyone had the same problem? i dont want him to become a fussy eater, but also dont want to create any bad food associations.

    What veggies are you giving him? My DS doesn't like plain ones so I tend to mix them with some mushed up wholewheat spaghetti and/or some cheese. Then he scoffs it!

    Maybe try giving him finger food for veggies; steamed carrot or zucchini, roast veggie wedges or cold cucumber. He might be more interested in a new texture.

    I would stop the custard totally - have you tried meats or fish? Corn on the cob is great at that age as the gum off little pieces ! As pp said try finger foods, put healthy steamed veggies or cold cucumber sticks , rice cakes, toast with avocado , boiled eggs or egg strips and let him feed himself , this is a great age to introduce a variety of foods - add garlic,ginger herbs and spices to everything and don't keep giving the same things as he will get fussy!
