    melissa takes after her mummy alright! lol.

    with the exception of my mum's veggie soup, she wont eat savoury food. she pulls a face and spits it out, sometimes even retches! :(

    so im giving her sweet stuff that she likes- is this ok?

    typical day she'll have:

    breaskfast - hipp organic banana, apple & rice

    lunch - hipp organic pears & red fruits

    dinner - half a gluten-free rusk made with boiled water and a little baby rice

    Trixi, hun, I know that the temptation is to let her eat only what she really wants, but believe me, it is easier to introduce new foods when they are babies rather than later when they get really picky!

    Maybe it is a case more to do with texture than taste. She is old enough to start trying with finger foods, like cooked carrot or even the odd bit of bread and butter or cheese spread? I think the brand is dairylea in england? - she is now over six months.

    You really do need to start varying her diet, as she needs to start eating things from different food groups.

    :hug:

    why don't you try her with a bit of ready cooked ham or chicken to start with - you don't need to worry about cooking/storing it then.

    Sweet potatoe,pork and apple is a lovely thing to cook, its sweet and nutritous.

    also you could try the jar foods with meat in while your learning how to cook the meat dishes. Get a baby cook book for ideas then you can vary to how you want to cook it. HIPP do some good chicken dishes (orchard chicken, grandpa's sunday lunch etc) but then when she gets to 7 months and can move to the next stage jars there is a better choice (IMO) and a fair few meaty ones. Also try her on mashed potatoes with either gravy or cheese & a bit of butter for tea, or I sometimes just give oran like carrot and turnip mashed with gravy, toast or bread with no crusts with primula or dairylea spread on its a good one for finger foods!
