If you think the curry is too hot, you can always stir through sone natural yoghurt or creme fraiche smile

They're still bf so it's still experimenting so as long as they eat, I'm not really fussed but I'd like to try something different with them.

They both have their own spoons to use but always want the one I'm holding haha.

They have porridge with puree fruit but chopped banana sounds like a good idea to start off with. And those sweetcorn patties sound so good. I think dts1 would like that salsa too.

They've never liked pizza but never tried curry as I'm hesitant which how much spice to use but I'll research that.

Thank you.

Think that if one like to feed themself, I would be temped to let them do it.

How about something like ready brek with chopped banana for breakfast

Lunch could be sweetcorn patties

Dinner could be homemade pizza, or if one wants spoon feeding maybe a curry with rice?

Would that work?

One likes to take the spoon from me and the other prefers to put his hands in it and suck his fingers doesn't want the spoon.

They also have those mesh eaters on occasion which they love.

At that age we just gave them what we had and didn't worry too much if they refused anything. How are they at self feeding?

Twins have only eaten pureee fruits and a few puree veg. Very fussy eaters. Dts1 has recently got his first 3 teeth while dts2 already has 7. They've always refused solids except little cheese cubes. They don't like toast and I'm stuck on what soft foods to put them on but learns them to chew.

Also, they're on Vegetarian diets.

Any ideas on how to get them to like solids and actually eat them? Tricks of the trade?
