"New food tastes, colors, smells, and combinations are a part of a child’s learning," said Dr Murray. "So after six months, the goal for feeding is to offer as many different foods as possible, over-and-over to help the child learn to enjoy it. Some are easy, like fruit and cereals. Some are hard, like green and yellow vegetables. But parents shouldn’t give up when their child doesn’t like a food at first. The more the toddler explores new foods, the more that they’ll enjoy it."
