Green Beans Nay, Apples Yeah

BG is 8 months and 1 week old.
Last time she had green beans she didn’t particularly like it but she didn’t really express her dislike. Now that she is 8 months old, she let us know she is not a fan of green beans. She started gagging and whining. Then DH gave her a spoonful of baked apple. She happily partook of it and probably devoured it to wash out the green bean taste.
I think she dislikes green beans because 1. It is the first non-smooth textured food she has had and 2. It doesn’t taste sweet or of anything in particular.
DH was cracking up watching her show her displeasure for green beans. Guess we are putting the green beans away again. They say try new foods at least 8-10 times before ruling it out. I think next time, I may mix it with something she does like that has a smoother consistency. Maybe introducing it that way may make it more palatable.
