Babies learn faster in their early life than at any other time

When you think about it, in the first year of life they learn to feed, cry, soothe themselves, chew foods, crawl, talk, walk and much much more. There is so much going on in their little world so make sure you are nurturing this development each day.

It can take a baby 10-15 times of trying a certain food before they will accept it. Don't give up!

If they refuse a new food, do not try to force them to eat it as this will create a negative meal time experience. Instead, offer another food that they are familiar with and just try again another day. Patience is key!

Babies are much better than adults at regulating their food intake - don't force them to finish everything on their plate

When they have had enough they will turn their head away. After about 20 minutes just take away any uneaten food. Trying to force them to clear their plate will result in negative meal time experience.

It may be time now to reinstate or to start a family tradition of having at least one meal together as a family. Sharing breakfast or dinner together as often as possible can have great benefits for your baby as they get older. Studies show that sharing meals can help to create a sense of closeness and can boost your child's conversational skills when they are older. It can also encourage fussy eaters to get involved when they see others sharing and enjoying meal times.

Encourage this development and always say the words along with the actions so that they can begin to put these together in their mind.
