Just wondering if anyone else is or has experienced problems with their bub not enjoying their veges?
My son is 10 months old and he has always been a really good, big eater who has loved his veges in the past. Now just in the last two weeks or so he really doesn't enjoy them. He will only open his mouth a tiny bit, if at all and tends to just sit there with it in his mouth as opposed to just swallowing.
I want him to enjoy his meal times. He still gobbles up fruit, snacks, toast, cereal, cheese etc., just not veges.
I have tried the following to "enhance" the taste for him. Adding cheese, cottage cheese, baked beans, spagetti, rice, and chicken stock. I have also mixed a bit of beef and vege soup, pumpkin soup and pea and ham soup for extra flavour. None of the above have really excited him. Tonight I tried vegemite added to the veges (thanks for the tip Bek) but unfortunately, still no go.
I also varied the time I gave it to him eg. lunch not dinner and also ensured he was really ready to eat.
Maybe this is just a stage he's going through. I heard babies can go through a very fussy eating stage but I was hoping it wouldn't happen until after one year as they say.
Not sure. Anyone had similar probs or have any suggestions?
