Babies often need to be exposed to new foods multiple times (10 - 15 times) before learning to accept it and they can sometimes gag when they try a new flavor or texture - this is a reflex leftover from our cave men & cave women days so babies didn't accidentally eat poison berries off the ground.

Something to remember is the timing of when you offer breast milk or formula can effect your baby's appetite as well. When you first give your baby solid foods, it's best to offer Babyblends in the middle of a milk feed. As your baby gets used to eating food, you can offer Babyblends before milk, or only offer milk between mealtimes.

If your baby doesn't like a particular flavor, we encourage you to try a variety of other flavors to see which one he or she likes best. Then, in a few days or weeks you can try that tricky flavor again, and chances are they'll come to love it! Interesting flavors incorporating herbs and spices are great for palate development, and research shows that early and repeated exposure to variation in flavors increases the likelihood the child will accept a wider range of foods later in life.
