My 6 month old daughter refuses to eat cereal and jar food, she was eating it fine for about a week then all the sudden lost interest in eating it, now she only wants a bottle, is this normal?shouldnt she be eating more than just formula?? Any suggestions on how to get her to eat cereal/jar food, ive tried mixing fruit in with the cereal but it doesnt help, its starting to concern me

At her age solid food is just for taste and texture not for nutrition. She should still be getting all her nutrition from her bottle.

In regards to what to feed her why don't you make your own foods? That way you know exactly what's in it. Start off by doing 1 vegetable at a time and leaving it for a few days to make sure there isn't any reaction. The best vegetables to start with are potato, carrot, sweet potato and pumpkin. Cook them then mash them up. There's no need to add anything else. I used to freeze them in a large ice cube tray and would just defrost 1 or 2 cubes as I needed them.
