How do you introduce new foods?
Let your child try one food at a time at first. This helps you see if your child has any problems with that food, such as food allergies. Wait 3 to 5 days between each new food. Before you know it, your child will be on his or her way to eating and enjoying lots of new foods.
Should I make my child try new foods?
Lumeng says children are more likely to try a new food if they see others eating and enjoying that food—especially if it's another child like a sibling or classmate. A "one bite rule" may help some children grow to like and accept new foods.
How many times should you offer a new food to a child?
Children need to be offered a new food as many as 10-15 times before they will eat it. Track your child's food sensitivities and keep them in mind when preparing meals.
