DS is turning 12 months this month, and we have been working on introducing finger foods for a few months now. He's completely interested in whatever we are eating, but he absolutely refuses to feed himself anything that is slimy or slippery. It's so many foods... cut up fruit & cooked veggies, pasta, whatever is a little slimy to the touch he won't pick it up. If we try to put it on a spoon & feed it to him that way, he knocks it off the spoon.
All of these foods he will eat in puree form, so it can't be the taste, it has to be the texture. I doubt it's the chewing, because he'll eat dry foods fine (cheerios, cut up chicken, cheese, etc). Anyone encounter a similar problem that can recommend what worked for their LO? Thanks!
