My daughter is just over 5 months old now & still on formula but due to start on solids soon.
My paediatrician has advised us to start her on solids at 6 months and to start with 10 days or fruits followed by 10 days of vegetables then to start mixing.
I'm afraid that she'll get a sweet tooth by starting on fruits first and then reject vegetables. One of my friends said to start on vegetables first then move to fruit. Her son is 16 months & eats everything.
My boyfriend eats virtually no fruit or veg (he said he was force fed them as a kid & now hates the taste of any fruit or veg) and I'm afraid my daughter will follow the same route. I want her to eat everything (like me!) and not be fussy (like daddy!)
