Poorly 8mth old and off savoury foods.

Dc has had a cold/cough thing for a week now, and life in terms of food consists of his milk, just up to 2.5 7oz bottles today (so a huge improvement on last few days of not much at all) but when it comes to food not interested unless it's a bit of cheese, fromage frais or banana. I am scared he wont go back to loving savoury like he did, but today it was just spitting it out like I'd given shite.

I am sure my first child did something similiar but I can't remember how I dealt with it. I 've given him food to pick up himself but not interested unless it's sweet.

Any thoughts? I imagine his throat might be not so great, but I hope he gets over this and accepts the savoury back in!

Not sure if its much help (I am a first time mum) but my DD was poorly a fortnight ago and went off solids, except for fruit pots, totally.

I just let her have her milk (3 bottles a day) and two fruit pots and as soon as she was better she has chosen to up her food intake, she is happily eating savoury again now.
