I would persist with the vegies as I too heard that if you start them on sweet things they get use to the sweet taste and it is hard to get them on to blander foods (vegies).. Perservere, as it will take a few days.. Saying this though, my little one struggled with his vegies too, so after a week I alternated fruit and veg and he eventually took both.... He now still has his moments with both but I am finding it all trial and error....
Hope this helps....

As your DS is young, I wouldn't be too worried or in any kind of hurry. You are only using solids to teach your baby to eat, so don't panic if he doesn't take to certain flavours or textures straight away. I think, keep it simple and fun - if he isn't interested that day, no drama - try again the next day.
Best of luck !

Have you tried any other vegies? My boy doesnt like carrot either, so I give him parsnip, sweet potato etc, when he gets used to those tastes I then mix in a little carrot.
I made the mistake of giving apple puree first, so he now has apple or pear puree with farex for breakfast and then vegies for dinner.
Keep persisting with the vegies, good luck
