My 10 month old loves food but will not feed himself enough. He will eat the Gerber puffs himself and I have offered some shredded meats, noodles, soft fruits and veggies but he won't feed it to himself. Does anyone have any ideas on getting him to feed himself and to take more of it? He will eat very little of it so I end up offering some purred food to make sure he eats. He is underweight for his age. And he was born a month early. I try offering finger foods everyday at every meal but he doesn't seem to want to feed himself. I have run out of ideas. Don't know what to do.
