At first it was a struggle to get Eli to eat. Many people told us to give him rice cereal at 4 months old (especially since he wasn't a good night sleeper). We tried and it was a fight every time. So we quit.
At 6 months old, we tried the rice cereal again....another failure. So, we said, 'When he starts reaching for food, we'd feed him.' Well folks, at 8 months old, the boy likes to EAT!
He'll eat anything you put in his mouth....including corn cobs and ribs! I would list his favorites, but he has pretty much devoured anything and everything in the last month and loves it all.
