Between 20% to 50% of babies are described by their parents as picky eaters: They push away food, turn their heads away when a spoon approaches, spit out food, and become cranky at mealtime.

Older babies may need some control in the high chair. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about feeding picky eaters, reasons some babies are picky eaters, tips on feeding baby, and much more.
