As your baby turns 10 to 11 months old and enters into toddlerhood, what seems to be picky eating is usually just your baby or toddler’s way of asserting control and independence. A baby’s appetite will change on a constant basis as will his likes and dislikes of foods. Eating solid food I still a new experience for toddlers. He may need time to get used to different food you are feeding. Don’t forget about the natural slow down of growth that babies go through. Babies who are coming out of a growth spurt will tend to eat less than they were during the growth spurt. To improve his food habits, you can let him feed himself and control what he is eating. Try offering colourful finger foods. You can try baked apple dices, sweet potato cubes. Let him have three meals a day with two snacks in between.
