My Beautiful daughter is almost 14 months old and we are having a tough time getting her to eat fruits, vegetables and meat that isn't in purred in a baby food jar. She is incredibly stubborn and will not eat any fruits or veggies other than cut up bananas. We have given her peas and carrots for two months and all she does is squish them in her fingers and then throw them on the ground. She will eat anything that is not mushy - Cheerio's, grilled cheese pieces, toast, yogurt puffs, cereal bars - or anything smooth - applesauce, yogurt, jarred baby food. But if she can smush in her fingers she has no interest in it. Short of holding her down and shoving it in her mouth, my husband and I are at a loss of what to do. I am so afraid she is not getting the nutrients that she needs. Any suggestions? Anyone been there?
