Mike's tip for making sure his baby gets something different to eat at each meal:
We've started feeding our five month-old baby solid food. We have six varieties of Stage 1 food (Earth's Best) and after trying them to ensure he had no reaction, we thought of how to make sure he gets a different flavor every day. It occured to us to simply give the foods in alphabetical order (Apples, Bananas, Carrots, Peas, Pears, Sweet Potatoes). This is also a great game for his 5 year-old brother, who helps us select the next food (and is quite good at remembering what his baby brother had the day before–perhaps better than his parents.)
For the more visually oriented: make sure you mix the colors together — variety will happen naturally.
