The Kid Who Won't Eat Fruit

They're just grapes Dude. No need to scream.

That’s right FRUIT! It’s so frustrating! I mean, who doesn’t like fruit? it’s nature’s candy for Pete’s sake! It’s sweet. It’s soft (or at least can be.) It’s colorful. It’s amazing!

Little Bean is not impressed. Any fruit given to him besides banana gets poked at, squished or thrown. The kid will attempt to put anything in his mouth. I mean ANYTHING: screws, bottle caps, wooden spoons, paper, tissues, but put a strawberry in front of him and he looks at you like you have 3 heads. He then proceeds to poke and squish it around his tray before crying for something else.


He does the same with melon, oranges, blueberries, peaches, pears, apples, papaya, and pineapple. I’ve tried it all and will continue to do so because babies are FICKLE and he will see the err of his ways. He did the same thing with banana, egg, and avocado all of which he now eats daily and happily I might say.

So I thought I’d share a new Baby Food Adventure. This is my fruit therapy so to speak. Every day I give him a chance to try a new (or old) fruit. If he eats it (which has happen ONCE in 2 months) I do a happy dance. If he doesn’t, well, let’s just say Mommy will win in the end. Click here see what happens in our latest Baby Food Adventure.
