Picky Eater!

With all of this extra feeding lately, I am learning that I have a son with an extreme sweet tooth!  Nate will not eat ANYTHING savory!  I thought maybe it was just because he's been eating jarred baby food and that can tend to be a little bland, but no, I made some great Sweet Potato/Apple/Chicken puree and he didn't go for that either.  Seriously, he gets really mad at me and just spits it right out!  Then I go right to applesauce, bananas - anything sweet or tangy and he loves it.

I've also tried spicing things up to add flavor, but still, he hates it!

Any ideas???

  1. Hopefully it's a short-lived phase. Maybe by refusing to offer the sweet stuff, he can get used to eating things like mushed up spaghetti, garlicky hummus, oatmeal, soup or chili. John Michael likes spicy and garlicky. You can try spicy, slightly salty, savory... anything but sweet and see if it helps. Of course, if all else fails, maybe mashed up fruit in yogurt? Hopefully you'll find a few things he likes and eventually can add to his list of "Nate-approved foods".
