Hiee Jhuma Rani... i am new to this site.. Thnx for such valuable suggestions on your blog!! I need your advice to help my 2 yr old. Actually we started to feed her food very late and kept on giving semisolids esp kheers and very fine milk chapati only. She didnt like solid food or used to get bored to chew and used to just swallow which would lead to vomitting. Lately i have stopped giving kheer or milk chapati and she had started eating chapati. But now the problem is she eats only and only plain chapati. No veggies, no daal rice, no khichadi, no soups, no parathas or any other food. Tried making variety food but of no use. If no chapati then she loves to drink only milk and jems. She can go for hours without eating. If buiscuits den only cream of cream buiscuits. If i give stuffed paratha or dip chapati in sabji or daal she will immediately find the difference and spit it out and start crying. She likes choclates, cakes etc. Even she wont drink sugar added or bournvita added milk only plain milk. I am feeling v helpless and dont understand what to do. Plss if you can suggest how can i handle this it will b gr8#! Srry for d long post. Awaiting repmy and suggestions. ... worried mom!!

you need to very gradually introduce all other foods in her diet. The best way it can be done is by making her have her meals with other family members at family meal times. Seeing others eat all other variety of foods would also encourage her to eat. You can start with keeping little amounts of dal/veggies/other foods in her plate along with her chapatti. You will have to keep trying and only after many tries, she would start accepting new foods in her diet. In the meantime, you can knead the dough of her chapatti with vegetables/dals. If possible arrange for her to eat with her peers like cousins/neighborhood children once in a while, to encourage her to eat.
