Babies this age goes through growth outbursts and teething phase too which triggers them to be cranky and less interested in food. You can suggest to introduce food in different shapes and colours to make it look more attractive. Also she can give silicon spoons and forks which grabs the babies attention to have food themselves. This worked well in my case. Apart from this she can give a good formula milk like Aptamil Gold Stage 2 for her 8 month old. It will be perfect as it has Prebiotics HMO's and DHA which includes all essential nutrients that are needed for a baby's healthy growth and strong immunity.

With age kids get moody and there tastes changes as well and hence they throw tantrums to eat well. While you continue to give him food in as many different ways as possible but would also suggest start a good formula milk suitable for this stage of your child so that he gets full nutrition. You can go for Aptamil Gold stage 2 formula milk for him it has all the vital nutrients like prebiotics and DHA that helps in boosting the immunity and brain development of the baby. Prebiotics helps with gut health as well. So do try to give this. Rest as suggested continue with fruits regularly.

Hi It happens with me at this stage. Don't worry. You should try to feed the child by making different things. Cut into different shapes and serve the steamed vegetables and fruits. Tell a story to the child when feed him. As a mother we should also be taken care that baby gets enough vitamins. I give my child Aptamil Gold stage 2 formula milk with solid food and breastmilk coz my child doing tantrums meal time daily and the result is incomplete nutrition. Aptamil Gold is doesn't cause gas or constipation due to the prebiotics and nutrition in it. I have seen growth in my baby after started it.
