C's first solid food, last weekend, was avocado. She was very excited to have it and seemed to really enjoy grabbing her chunk of avocado and squishing it and smearing it around. By the second day she was getting some of it into her mouth, but that resulted in somewhat comical faces and pushing it back out with her tongue. Sweet potato got about the same result, so I don't think it's just a dislike of avocado. She's definitely interested in the food, but not yet a fan of actually eating it. Perhaps we'll try banana next.

Any cute or funny first food stories from the parents here?

I saw an interesting article in the last year which suggested that kids often want to spit out food they're trying for the first time, even if they like it. (And that interestingly, you might end up with less fussy kids if you let them. Don't know if I buy it, but it seems oddly plausible.)

T refused to really eat much in the way of solids until one day when I was eating a peach and let him nosh on the peach I was eating. It was a fresh, local, juicy peach. MMMMm.

It's possibly even an evolutionary adaption, I suppose - if something's new, it might be more likely to be poisonous.

Anyway, this was the thing I read, and it cites the study (4th and 5th graders) at the end: http://itsnotaboutnutrition.squarespace.com/home/2010/12/7/why-some-kids-should-spit.html
