हेलो मैम, मेरी बेटी 4 साल की है, वो खाने में बहुत ज्यादा समय लगाती है और खाना भी ठीक से नही खाती, चाहे उसे उसकी पसंद का भी बना कर दे दो।

Translated to English

Hello Mamma, my daughter is 4 years old, she takes a lot of time to eat and does not even eat food properly, even if she makes her choice as well.

then she should be encouraged to eat a little faster. You can ask your child if she wants more variety, or is bored of same type of food or anything else. Try including her favourite foods too. Milk should be restricted to 500-550 ml maximum in a day, so that the child doesn't fill the stomach with milk only. Fix meal times for the child, that is with family meal timings. Keep a gap of at least 2-3 hours between the feeds be it milk or solid. Don't let the child eat in between. Give healthy options, which should be what the family is eating. Try including the favourite healthy options for the meals. You can make snacks healthier by using whole grain flour, vegetables & fruits. Try & make regular food interesting like chapatti veggies as Kathi roll or vegetables, cheese/shredded chicken spread over roti with ketchup. Give variety your child in foods. Encourage the child to indulge in more outdoor games and activities to increase appetite.
