Answer:
I hope you are doing well. You can add veggies to porridges,chillas,khichdis,pulao,soups,pancake,idlis,dosas and uttapam. You can add fruits to fruit yogurt,fruit custard, milkshakes, smoothies,puddings and rice pudding. You need to train him to chew.Give him small bites and show him how it is to be chewed :)
