introduce-food-for-babyOnce your baby becomes capable of eating, she will eat most baby foods with little hesitation. However, some babies are more finicky than others. Finickiness increases as you introduce more and varied solid foods. Fortunately there is an effective method to help your baby learn to love new foods.

Based on recent research and our experience, the best way to introduce a new food that your baby doesn’t seem to like is through repetition without pressure. For example, if your baby does not initially like peas, offer a bite of peas before any other food for at least ten days. Don’t pressure your baby to eat the peas, simply offer them. It may surprise you, but by the tenth day most children will not only like peas, but my love them! An in depth study showed that this method was effective over eighty five percent of the time.
