just keep trying neew things constantly, even if he doesnt like something the first time he may like it the 2nd, or 3rd, or 15th, just keep trying. Roz loves the gerber fruit bite things, they come in a jar like like baby food, but they are cut up bit of apple, and they have carrot too, they are cut up the perfect size for them and they are soft too. she also loves the gerber puffs and lil crunchies, and they are so easy to take with us, and we found these little honey bunny things at walmart they are organic graham crackers, they are easy to chew and disolve quickly and Roz eats them like crazy!

All kids become picky eaters at some point... unfortunatley there is no getting around it!! Just have to keep on trying it and then all of a sudden one day the love it... then the following week they will hate it again!! LOL! Its just the way it is... my kids at least have to try everything with the one bite rule... though I must admit I dont have that problem with my 11 month old.. .he will just shove everything into his mouth as soon as it hits his tray! So Id say just keep on trying to put it on her tray... I feel my guy pretty much everything as long as it is somewhat soft and cut up really small... so small that I dont have to worry if he just swallows it! Works great!! Good luck!

My son would only it certain things at one time too. What I did was find a toddler fork that was metal(like mama and daddy's) and let him use it. He has started eating so much more and loves doing it himself. Good luck
