Hey Shruti! Does she do something along with it while having food like watching rhymes on ipad or viewing TV? Children tend to get lost in the cartoon or whatever activity is going on alongside and forget to chew. they have to be constantly reminded to do so. You could try following things: 1. Avoid diverting her mind with TV or ipad or phones (if that's being done ). 2. Show her pics of children with cavities on net and let her know that keeping food in mouth for long causes cavities. 3. give her small bites which are easy and faster to chew. 4. Give her handy food which she can feed herself like idli or dosa rolled so that it becomes easier for her to hold or chapati rolled, sandwiches with vegetables or paneer as stuffing etc. If she would feed herself she would know when she is full and would stop on her own. Though u could assist her in putting spoons of dal or raita alongside. She would soon unlearn this habit if she is constantly reminded and also made to have food along with other family members. Hope this helps!
