    Not a clue...I have not found it yet...LOL...
    at 6 months old, if it even resembles food, it is in their gut before you can realize it.

    the only thing was eggplant....and it only slowed them down for a day until it was cut in half.

    Mine love cooked pinto beans, rice, oatmeal (thin, not thick), lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, melons of all kinds, yogurt, breads, strawberries, corn, etc. I have learned soft anything is generally better than hard anything.

    However, germaine to your post:

    They do not like raw or cooked carrots but I can mix pureed cooked carrots in with other stuff. Five of mine hate bananas, three of mine love them. Raisins are a universal "not a chance" with the whole bunch.

    Green beans, raw or cooked

    Raw pumpkin, but they eat raw pumpkin seeds. They will eat cooked pumpkin if I mush it up, which is great for getting them to take worming powders! [​IMG]

    Just introduced pumpkin... one group loved it, the others looked at me like I was crazy. They didn't touch it all day.
