Reply: When it comes to taste of the food babies love sweet taste and get hooked on to the fruit sauces easily as compared to the bland/ salty flavor of veggies and cereal. Try to keep giving veggies and cereal too for variety. At this age infant should eat three meals a day besides formula feeds. Introduce one new food every week.
