Conclusion

If you notice that there are foods your baby doesn’t eat at all, it could be that he didn’t like it because of the way it was cooked or its flavour in that particular dish. Re-introduce such foods in a different way, sneak them into other dishes that he likes, and present dishes in creative and colourful ways. You’ll be surprised at how your baby actually might enjoy the same food he rejected earlier! For more ideas on what to cook up next week, click here!
