My son is 1. 8 months old. He is very fussy eater sometimes he will eat something but soon he will reject it or the next time if i'll prepare the same he rejects the same. I keep on trying something or the other for him so that he may eat something but every time he rejects my effort. What should I do so that he develops a habit of eating every food.

I follow every bit of this and my 10 months old eats everything that we do... she is receptive to new food items and feels happy to eat what the rest of the family is eating... this has also helped us in maintaining a healthy diet :)
