Trying new foods with kids can be fun, rewarding and frustrating. I make sure we bring new foods into the house regularly as well as have the favorites available. We all have different taste preferences so sometimes the foods are a hit and sometimes, they may only be appreciated by one of you. Do your best to expose the family (and yourself!) to new foods and remember, you often have to do this a number of times before the kids may even try them but do not give up after one attempt.
As you can see, I have one that is willing and one that is not so so I can sympathize with you. Keep the foods out, let them look, smell and explore with them. And yes, after the video, my son ate 2 figs but did not care for the golden raspberries.
