How to Help Baby Love Vegetables

Try these simple practices to instill a love of veggies in your baby and make the transition to solid foods smoother.
feeding baby Introduce Flavors Early Through Breast Milk

According to recent studies babies are more likely to enjoy the foods their moms ate while breastfeeding over new foods they were never exposed to. "We know flavors from a mom's diet are transmitted to her baby through breast milk," says Julie A. Mennella, Ph.D., a biopsychologist at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia. "Babies can detect the flavors and, if they have experience with those flavors, they are going to be more accepting of the food." The lesson? If you're breastfeeding, start Baby's love of veggies early by piling some on your own plate.
