I know it's been done before but I'm needing inspiration again!

8 mo is becoming picky! She had been willing to try literally everything but is now turning her nose up at lots of lovingly prepared foods sad

She LOVES cucumber but cannot live on this...
Fruit of all kinds is good. Rice cakes, yoghurt and newspaper are also popular ;)

But lovingly made lentil and cheese wedges, pitta pockets, chicken casserole, porridge, and previously popular omelette have all recently been ceremoniously WIPED onto the floor followed by a what else have got grumble....

Inspire me please!!

Well we're a bit behind you at 6 mo but today lamb and potato, pasta with tuna and avocado, and paper napkin seemed to hit the spot.

DH is just cooking the tomato chicken recipe from the BLW cookbook which will be the first real "meal" that dd will try tomorrow so I'll let you know if its a winner!

My Lo is 11mo and is going through a similar stage of food refusal and he loved his food before. Tonight he had 2 potato wedges, 1 cube of breaded chicken, 1/2 a cocktail sausage and 1/2 a rich tea biscuit hmm

Biggest success with my nearly 7 month old are potatoes (wedges, roast, chips!), peaches, asparagus, chunks of lamb and sweet potato from tagine, and carrots, parsnips, swede and chicken thighs from a stew.
The tagine was a hairy dieters recipe I was making anyway. Only 1 stock cube in whole casserole and no extra salt so fine for dd.
I spread crumpets or bagel with avocado or banana which is popular.
Also made some muffins with grated carrot, apple, dessicated coconut, egg, flour, sunflower oil and bit of oat milk. I adapted from baby led weaning site. She loved them!
Not sure she's actually eating tons yet, but she enjoys trying and the dog is grateful for the cast offs!! baby led weaning book talks about babies going through picky stage 7-8 months I think, so it must be really common.
