My 9 mo old daughter is refusing to eat her baby food. I have tried tricking her into beliving it is what we are eating by putting it in one of our glass bowls instead of her plastic color bowls and it worked for a bit but she has caught on. So any ideas on what to feed her.

It sounds like she wants what you are eating. Why not indulge her? Just take it off your plate, cut it up/mash it small enough for her, and let her go for it :)

Sounds like she wants your food :) Give her little bites and see what happens, but don't introduce too much new stuff all at once to avoid reactions. We ate a lot of mixed veggies, so our kids do the same now. Good luck :)

Yup, sounds like she is ready for table food. Same rules still apply when offering new food though....new food offered, continue to offer it for 3-5 days to make sure no allergic reactions and offer no other new foods during this time.

We used to do that with our kid too, once he stopped eating whatever we spooned into his mouth. They want what you have not baby stuff mum! Spaghetti should be fine cut up small and bits of veggies to mung on. They can eat most stuff as long as they can't choke on it or it's not an allergy risk.

Thank u Jodie. I will try this. Is there any limit to what i can feed her? I know she isnt supposed to have peanut butter, honey, nuts or popcorn. So if I am having spaggetti she can have that with the sauce?
