Trying new foods is an important part of development. But try and remember how
you felt when you tried a dish for the first time? You might have felt strange
or unpleasant. This is exactly how some children feel too, and it’s completely
normal. Try not to over-complicate the food. Offer new foods at a time when your
child is not tired and is reasonably hungry, but not too hungry. Remember that
children may need the same food to be introduced as many as six to fifteen times
before they try it.
