eating problem

My daughter is turning one year on the 20th this month and a problem of eating. She like drinking rooibos tea but most of the time when we try to give her food she pushes it away. Sometimes she eats it sometimes not and when we think she likes something the next day when we give it to her she refuses to eat it.She also like meat but doesnt have teeth. What can we do to make her eat. Please help cause its been for a while.

It is a pity that you do not mention your baby's weight here as this would help to decide whether there is a problem here or not. Is your baby taking her milk well?Many babies of this age do not like coarse food and especially if they do not have teeth yet. You must only offer her very finely mashed food now. Try to give her only those foods which she likes and then only introduce new foods slowly one by one into her diet. Do not fill her up with rooibos tea. Once a day is enough.

She doesnt drink milk because she reacts from it. I have tried to introduce her to Nan,S26 and other but she still reacts. Everytime I give her milk she vomits and i dont knw wats the problem.
