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. From one year of age you should start with three meal pattern, i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner along with two snacks. To avoid constipation both fluid and fiber intake has to be increased. For that Give more water. If the child doesn’t take plain water include fluids like coconut water, , juices, soups etc. Give dals with husk in khichri form or add whole dals/beans/legumes to the soups. Give porridge of dalia, oats, ragi, rice flakes. Alternatively these whole cereals can be used for khichri, uttapam, upma or idlis too. Give plenty of fruits & vegetables. Hard fruits like apple, pear can be given as stew. Fruits like banana, papaya, cheeku be given as it is or in a mashed form. Avoid giving refined cereals/ maida products.
