“Research suggests… the more enjoyment they have eating nutritious food as a baby, the more likely they are to carry that message through life. Eating a wide variety of foods means that what nutrition you don’t get from one food, you may well get from another, so then you are more likely to have a healthy diet overall. …Research indicates it may take as many as 10-15 attempts before a child will finally accept a new flavour.
Up to the age of 6 months infants need no other foods than breast milk or formula. Because breast milk changes in flavour according to mums diet, breastfeeding prepares the infant for other tastes. At around six months infants are ready to start their first solids.”
