feeding my 14 month

my 14 month will not eat stage 3 baby food, he has 6 teeth and can chew, he eats gerber puffs, but any baby food with chuncks he spits out. he will eat all kinds of stage 2 foods, so its not that he doesn't like certain foods. what should i do?

Keep trying. It may take him a while to get use to the texture of the chunkier foods. In the meantime you can puree the foods to make them smoother. Then maybe he'll eat them. Some children have very sensitive gag reflexes. My cousin's son is 10 and still can't eat mashed potatoes or anything with a similar texture. He gags on it.

Maybe he doesnt like the way the pureed stage three foods taste

Try making him some mashed potatoes,macaroni and cheese and see how he is with something that is not pre made

He could just be going through a phase where he doesnt want to eat certain foods

My daughter did that for a week or two around 13 months old and she is now 16 months
