Food number three – strained peas
I’ve had more than a few people recommend that we add apples, bananas, or other fruits/juice to the foods we’re offering to make them more palatable, but our pediatrician and several books are steering us away from the sweeter foods for now. If she develops a taste for the sweet stuff right out of the box, why would Violet ever want veggies? (We’re hoping pureed kale will be one of her favorites.) One fact I found surprising was that you can’t trust a baby’s face when it comes to their first taste of a food. Most babies wrinkle up their noses at any new flavor or texture, even when they like the taste. Whether they open their mouth for a second taste is the true test, or even if they don't, they might be willing to give it a go on another day. I know I had to try sushi about half a dozen times before I decided I liked it. With that in mind, we tried zucchini again tonight, and Violet seemed more amenable to it. Maybe the peas will go down easier tomorrow.
