Try fresh vegetable, the jar stuff is vile, i certainly wouldnt eat it if it was given to me. I have had my daughter on fresh food the whole time and she hasnt refused anything. She has never tasted a jar of baby food. Also if they can feed themselves it helps a lot as well.

Are the vegetables fresh or out of a tin/jar?? I think they taste totally different. Mix it in with all sorts of other bits n pieces they are trying. I had a heap of little containers and every 2 days id cook up 5 diff veg and store them seperate in the fridge, then id sometimes have potato, pumpkin, peas and brocoli or potato, carrot, zuchinni cauliflower etc. My son also loved a bit of cheese in it or a bit of chicken breast. Try heaps of natural fresh things they will come around.....

keep plugging away...keep them on a liquid vitamin, though....maybe puree you own vegies would taste better to them....just make sure it is completely pureed (choking)...my sons always ate our vegetables but I just pureed them in a little 1 cup food processor...however, we did have butter, salt, or pepper on most of them...which may bother them...it didn't ours but you could always puree it before adding anything...we also used super small bites on the end of there spoon or mixed it with something else...really, now that I am thinking about it or kids ate everything we did, some of it was pureed and some was cut small for finger foods...but they both had teeth by then too. My oldest had teeth at 3 months...talk about freaky....what a trip to the Dr. that was...and my youngest, wanted regular food at 5 months...Go Figure:)

try mixing some of the fruit they like with just one veg- remember texture is different
