I prepare different foods every day but he doesn't want to eat. he likes to drink only milk. pls give me suggestions, what should I so that he will start liking solid food again. Earlier he used to eat everything but now he doesn't want to eat anything. I m actually worried . pls suggest what should I do?

Answer:
you need to restrict the total milk amount to 500-650 ml maximum in a day, so that the child doesn't fill his stomach with milk only. You also add more variety of flavour and texture to his meals. You may maximum offer a child in this age 3 solid feeds and 3-4 milk feeds. Keep enough gap between his feeds, be it solid or milk to ensure that he 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,idli, dosa, uttapam,fruits etc.
