My baby just turned one and has been a great eater ever since she started on solids. She ate purees to start with but was more keen on feeding herself so has been eating all sorts for months now. Her favourites were beans (black-eyed and black) rice, egg, cheese, fruit, sweet potato chunks, courgette...she also ate all sorts of other veggies, usually combined with rice or pasta, also fish.
But now all of a sudden she won't eat any of that stuff. She'll put a piece of food in and then spit it out in disgust and spend a couple of seconds scraping her tongue off with her hand then go nuts if I try to get her to try another taste. Same thing if I give her something on a spoon. It's not just vague disinterest, or not really hungry it's like "yuk! what is this gross stuff you're giving me!?" I wouldn't worry if it was just some stuff but it's almost everything and stuff she would eat every day a couple of weeks ago.
She'll still eat avocado, cheese, sandwiches (cheese or PB), cereal and fruit, but that's about it. I've tried new tastes too in case she's getting bored, but that didn't go down any better. She is teething off and on, but that's not new - also I don't see why she would still eat the above but reject anything else if it were teeth-related.
Anyone else been through anything similar? Any suggestions? Do baby's taste or sensory appreciation suddenly change around this time?
