Is your little darling baby a picky eater? It happens to the best of us: we get the little tikes seated in their high chairs during mealtime and they refuse to eat anything nutritious. Don't give up! Try a different approach instead. When your baby refuses certain food items, cut them into interesting shapes before serving. If food looks more appealing to your baby, he or she is more likely to eat it. Maybe soft foods is the problem, try mixing in some bright food coloring. Remember that a young baby needs to see and experience a food many times over until it becomes familiar and thus enjoyable. With patience, you'll have your baby loving those veggies in no time!
