8 months old solid feeding

hello mummy, my son is seven months plus and he only eats cerealac. I have tried giving him some other home cooked puree and it seems he doesn’t like it at all. Fruits and vegetables like sweet potatoes or watermelon he still doesn’t like it. Each time I make him try new food he will give a face like he’s about to puke. I don’t mind giving him cerealac Every day but what if he starts to grow up will he be rejecting any other foods? I’m so stressed right now what should I do?

Hi , i started mixing a teaspoon of puree to my organic oats and introduce it to my son . I tried new food every 3 days to see if he is allergic . I started to mash some bananas and avocado . And suprisingly , he loved the new taste . Try slowly .

Super Mum

Did you try giving finger food instead of puree form? For example watermelon, banana, boiled pumpkin etc you can give directly, he might be interested to try new textures. Cerelac has lots of sugar, not the healthiest option

Hi, Kids adapt to different kind of food tastes slowly slowly. so don't worry about it and I would suggest introduce different kinds of food slowly slowly. Example mashed potatoes mixed in puree etc.


cerelac is rather sweet. it might be too bland with the food you've prepare I'll suggest to change cerelac to other brand.
