    • Awesome!!! If he doesn’t like it, it could take up to 10 times of trying, consecutively at every meal! If he still doesn’t take to it after 15 times, try mixing it with a fruit he already eats, like banana or pears. He will gobble that up for sure! I would hold off on mixing veggies with fruit because you want him to LIKE/LOVE veggies on their own first. Let me know how it goes!!!
