So, our LO loves all types of food, veggies, meat, fruit, but it HAS to be puree. We've been trying and trying to get her to eat table food and she just hates the texture. Even the purees with chunks in them, she will spit out all of the chunks one by one. I have tried smashing some food and putting on her plate or high chair and letting her pick it up, but she won't put them in her mouth. She likes the little puff snacks that our pedi recommended for working on her pincer grasp a few months back, but she just lets those dissolve in her mouth. She doesn't seem to get chewing and has no interest in trying to chew. And literally, I can feed her pureed, organic sweet potato from a jar that has nothing else in it, and then offer her the exact same thing smashed up and she will. not. eat. it.
I am kind of afraid she's going to be a year old and refusing to eat food that isn't pureed. She's very stubborn! Any tips?
