Q - My baby really likes fruit, but doesn't seem interested in veg. Can they have too much of one thing, and should I try to encourage them onto other things?
A - Itís important to introduce lots of different tastes and textures to prevent fussy eating later on. Why not try giving vegetables as a finger food such as a carrot baton?
Also, babies like familiar foods and will often accept something once itís been offered in excess of 10 times Ė but never force.
As weaning progresses, you can also mix cooked vegetables with other foods such as minced meat to make a bolognaise.
