in this nutrition section only nutrition related queries are answered. For rest of your queries you may post them in wellness/fitness section. Generally guava juice is available in packaged option only, which can be avoided. Instead you you can give deseeded guava slices or stewed gauava to your child. At one year of age, a child may not start with solids easily, you should not force feed the child. If you force feed the child either he would vomit or behave rudely, which he is doing. Instead introduce one new food at a time, let the child accept it and gets used to it for few days. Introduce another new food only after a week. Do not introduce new foods back to back, it may confuse the child and would lower his acceptance. Try and keep the consistency thin to semi solid, depending on child's preference and swallowing/chewing capacity. Milk should be restricted to 500-550 ml maximum in a day, so that the child doesn't fill the stomach with milk only. Keep enough gap between his feeds, be it solid or milk to ensure that child is hungry. You can give porridge of suji, sagi, dalia, rice flakes, ragi etc. Kheer of apple, rice etc. halwa of suji, atta, pumpkin, gajar, sweet potato etc. Khichri, upma, soft scrambled egg yolk, soups, mashed veggies, chapatti, rice,fruits etc
