my son is 9 months old and stil hasnt had the interest in starting table food. i break up the food and put it in front of him and all he does is grab it and play with it. how can i get him to realize its food? and start to eat it?

I would start with pureed foods first rather than breaking it into small bites for him to eat himself. With my 9 month old son I started with pureed foods and worked his way up to eating small bites on his own. He does very well and is even trying to feed himself with a spoon. I think that it's a step by step process :) I hope this helps :) Good luck!

i just got my daughter started a couple of days ago. All I did when i saw her playing with it was when she had it in her hand I put her hand to her mouth and after a couple times of doing that she got it just fine. She's still very clumsy with it, but she's getting the hang of it.
