Kids at this age become very fussy and picky eater. They need variety in food and they want food in an attractive way. Also they prefer small meals not full plate of roti, sabji, dal, rice. Give them small nutrient dense 5-6 meals in a snack form in a day. Firstly try finding out which food your child likes and which ones he dislikes. Try hiding foods he doesn’t like into his favorites. Next, offer it as finger foods, and serve in an attractive manner, like, sandwiches cut in different sizes, can be made with whole wheat Bread, with a variety of filling like, cheese/paneer or veggie sticks and with spreads like, cheese, butter and hung curd, hummus , chutney etc. Or else. prepare omelet or pancake/paratha with different variations and cut it into different shapes with biscuit cutter. Offer milk as milk shake, smoothie with many varieties of fruits and veggies. At this age, you need to be patient and offer small amounts in every meal. Avoid giving too many liquid calories like juices.or soda drinks or sugar rich foods Lastly do not force feed and let your child decide when and how much he should be eating.
