I have read that a child starting to eat food must try it for about 15times before they know if they really like it or not. I thought my son didnt like potatoes at the beginning so i just kept giving it to him to try and eventualy he loved it! I am not saying give your son something 15 times a day to try but dont give up on foods that he seems to not like,just cook it everynow and then and let him try.Good luck

Keep offering him food. At this age food is mainly for texture and taste, not nutrition, but he does need to get used to it. Sit down as a family for meals and give him finger foods.
