As your baby transitions into the world of solid foods, they tend to accept new flavors and textures more freely. Capitalize on their curiosity by offering a larger variety of different flavors from meal to meal. By combining different textures, flavors and colors, you can maximize every bite.
If your baby is not interested in a particular food, that's OK! Simply continue offering the food in future meals along with a variety of new food combinations. Babies instinctually understand their own needs and should always self-regulate their feedings. Therefore, listen to your baby and follow their direction during feedings.
