Is your little one not too wild about strawberries but loves blueberries? Try food chaining!

Food chaining strawberries is easiest coming from another berry. Think through is there a berry your little one will already accept? Try cutting the strawberry up to be a similar size to that other berry. Then try mixing a small amount of those cut-up strawberries with the berry your little one already accepts.

It’s ok if they pick out the strawberries. Continue to slowly increase how many strawberries are mixed in each time you serve it. Sometimes using a bridge can be helpful too like yogurt, whipped cream, or peanut butter (strawberries + PB are the new banana + PB, trust me!)
