My baby girl is 11 months old. Her birth weight was 3. 54 kg and now she is only 7. 3 kgs. She eats very less and she is a very fussy eater. I puree everything for her as she cannot eat mashed. She never demands for feed. She is active though. Please suggest what can I do to increase her weight. NOTE: she cannot eat mashed food... only smooth blended food she has.

Add extra spoon of ghee/butter/oil to their dishes.
