My son refuses to eat any fresh or cooked fruits and vegetables, unless they are mashed and camouflaged into his food. He eat it until around 1 1/2, then I have noticed that following some incident at the daycare, he started vomiting at the sight of anything fresh. (At the daycare there was a child who was always vomiting when offered fresh foods). I tried on numerous occasions to offer as varied as possible fresh fruits and vegetables but the reaction is always the same. He starts vomiting or he provokes himself vomit.

Lately, we progressed a little and he is smelling the fruits but sometimes, even the touch of it provokes him the same reaction. We are a very health conscoious family, both my husband and I eat fresh and organic as much a possible, we have been good examples for our son, yet I feel that we are losing this battle.

I checked with our PD and she said that we need to keep trying to offer. we are trying for two years without any result.

Do you have any similar experiences? Is this a dysfunction? Any solutions?
