I decided to retry the carrot using carrots I prepared myself. Theo liked them a lot more than the slippy pre-cut ones.
He also had a corn on the cob, which was a bloody stupid idea, and he left that well alone. He is clearly already more sensible than I am.
That's a well chewed carrot there son.
I had some apple custard tart left over from the night before (homemade as well. I even did the pastry from scratch) and he enjoyed a piece of apple picked from the tart.
Here he is with a piece of stray custard on his face. Also milk (he wanted a feed halfway through lunch. Can't BLW with Theo when he's hungry. I know that seems counter productive, but the Gill Rapley book suggests not trying them with food when they are hungry)
