I did baby-led wean­ing, but now my daugh­ter is 14 months and still won’t touch any­thing with a sauce. Help!

In baby-led wean­ing, tots of­ten eat food like pasta and sauce us­ing their hands, so don’t solely stick to things you think of as fin­ger foods. Let your tot have a go at feed­ing her­self with a spoon. Give her the foods she likes in a bowl first, so that she gets used to the idea, then move onto things like lasagne. And be cre­ative – give her a pot of bolog­nese with toast or car­rots to dip into it.
