My daughter will be 7 months old tomorrow. She has been having solids along with expressed breast milk since 4 months. She has ALWAYS enjoyed them, but we have run into trouble. She is now refusing breakfast and lunch (she still loves her meat and veges and sometimes rice or pasta for dinner). She has maybe 2 teaspoons of lunch and breakfast and that's it; and I know she is still hungry. I feel she is getting bored these 2 meals. For breakfast she has one of the following - scrambled eggs, semolina with mashed fruit, weetbix with mashed fruit or porridge with mashed fruit, and she usually then has a bit of toast with vegemite. For lunch, she has one of the following natural yoghurt with fruit mas/puree, or soft fruit cut up into small chunks, custard, or rice pudding. She is able to chew small chunks of fruits and veges as well as toast and bread (but I don't feel she could tackle a sandwich yet). I am wondering if anyone else has any suggestions for breakfast and lunch?
