My LO loves pasta and fruits but she would hardly eat any vegetables. I'm thinking to expand her menu and offer her something new. Please share what your babies love to eat

I would leave the pasta out of the equation for a while. It is something she loves a lot of and it is empty calories and no real nutrition comes of pasta. Give her rice instead. Whole grains. Those have the calories but offer some nutrition that pasta does not.

She has no problem with milk and cheese I'll try mixing the pasta with chicken or beef. Beans sound like a good idea

She needs milk, cheese, or yogurt to gain her daily dairy intake. Quite giving her pasta and give her cooked meats like chicken r beef. Give her whole grains only. Also offer peanut butter as a protein. Use beans of various kinds. The beans not only have protein but some are also considered a veggie. My son hated veggies at this age so he just got fruit. As he got older he had to try a veggie before he got to have treats.
