I have tried and tried to transition my 17 month old son to table food and he wants nothing to do with it, he will throw it on the floor and just turn his head away when its offered. He's still eating baby food and eats other snacks and stuff not just baby snacks its just the meals getting him to eat table food. Any advice is helpful please.

thank you

Do you all sit down and eat together? I found that my kids wanted to eat what we were having and refused baby food early on. They like to copy us so if he sees what you're eating he may want it as well.

Completely normal. He will try the food eventually. For now just keep offering. I remember when my daughters went through that stage and everything ended up on the floor lol. Try hotdogs, cut into very small pieces they all love those. Start with finger foods.
