My daughter (8months) has been refusing vegies for nearly two weeks. She will eat fruit, yoghurt and cereal. Any suggestions on how to encourage her to eat vegies again?

I have a similar problem with my son so I continue to buy baby food veggies and mix them into his dinners (Like Mac and Cheese) Seems to be working for now.

I would take some veggies and then dip the end of the spoon into fruit so the 1st taste was sweet.  It always worked for me.  When they got older I would just mash the veggies a little bit and they liked the texture better than the smooth.  I found out that if you keep offering it they will eventually eat it on there own.
