hi my son is 4 years n 8 months old.. n but he does not chew food properly.. he used to keep the food in his mouth.. how to develop eating habitsnutrition Corner
If the child prefers soft, mushy food only, give only that for the time being. You can gradually introduce solid foods in diet, by giving one or two bites of it. Give soft foods like porridge ( dalia, suji, sago, rice flakes etc). You may also give vegetable upma of suji, ragi etc. Try and make your child have meals with family. This would encourage them to start with solids. Show them chewing your foods. Give gaps between meals so that they are hungry enough to eat. Children also follow each other. Seeing other children eat solid food would also encourage them to eat. Hope it helps.
