How do I get a teething 11 month old to eat?

My 11 month old son is teething, and he doesn't seem to have it terribly bad, but he still won't eat anything. I'm still breast feeding him before naps and when he goes to bed, but I don't think he's eating enough solids during the day. I do what I can and try to make sure that he's eating at least some cheerio's and some yogurt, but I really would like some tips on how to get him to eat some more solids during the day. Thoughts?

My son was the same way.. I always made sure he would drink his milk/juice. But my son didn't want to eat either. He would eat a couple bites here and there and be done for the day. I would also feed him baby food or try to at least. He would normally take that. But they know when they are hungry. So I wouldn't stress about it. His mouth is prolly just sore and swollen. My son is 19 months now and just finished cutting one eye tooth and he went right back to not eating. My mom said at least give him V8 juice so he is getting his servings of vegetables.
