16 month old hates veggies

My 16 month old won’t eat a single veggie. Is it okay if I supplement with purée pouches that have veggies? I always offer it. He takes one bite, spits it out and then throws it.

    @MorganBrown Eating solids has nutritional value but there are important oral-motor developmental benefits as well. If the limitation is vegetables then the pouch is not likely to be a problem. Please review with your child's pediatric provider.
