Q.

vegatables

Good morning!
I only recently (about 2wks ago) introduced my 13month old boy to vegatables (pumpkin, butternut, sweet patato). Before he was on purity. First couple of days he was fine in eating it, but the second week, he vomit almost every day after supper. He would have veg for lunch too, but didn''t vomit, only after supper. I now stopped and see that he enjoys spaghetti bolognaise and chicken. He also has his snack during the days which is yoghurt and fruit. The last time i gave him veg (friday nite) he vomit really bad, there was no more coming out, but still he wanted to vomit. So now my question is, could it be that he''s allergic to fresh vegatables, which is probably highly unlikely i would guess, but what could it be?

This is not due to an allergy as he can eat vegetanbles at lunchtime without vonmiting.He does not like to eat vegetables it seems which is very common with boys. Try giving him one vegetable at a time and try to find which ones he seems to like,if any. With time and with patience he will start to eat a wider variety of vegetables but do not try to give him any of those just make him vomit.
