Solids - Does only want to eat home-made food
Hi Helen

Since I have benefited greatly from your advice earlier, I would also like to ask you about solids.

Mads is now 4 months old (date of birth the 23th of October), and started on solids about a month ago, which he enjoys very much. Consequently, one week ago, we introduced a solid meal (cereal) in the evening.

The problem is that he is not interested in the pre-cooked solids (in glass or in powder).

He only wants to eat mummy's home-made cereal of maize flour and millet flakes with a topping of home-made apple pure.

The other day we tried to offer him home-made potato/carrot pure, without any luck.

My question is whether I can prepare the cereal/pure myself, bring it along and the heat it, when he needs a feed?

Is the apple pure too sweat?

Best regards
Mette
