Yes. He seems interested in what we are eating but as soon as we give it to him or let him feed himself he spits it out. I was having a bit of luck with potatoes but he recently started gagging on them so he will not touch them now.

Thanks Jodi. He used to love eating purees but recently decided he did not want that either. I tried mashed, chopped and finger food but he will not touch any of it. I am a very healthy eater so I am worried about him not getting enough fruit and veggies.

Are you offering them as purees, mashed, chopped or finger food? Sometimes that makes a difference. For instance, my daughter would not touch purees, and would often only eat it off my plate, so I would regularly add extra to my plate, and then in a place where she was sitting and could see, transfer it to my plate to hers and she would eat with her fingers.
