You need to limit her milk feeds and alternate them with solids. Start with a spoon or so and gradually increase the amounts of feed according to her acceptance. Keep a gap of minimum 2 hours between her milk feed and solid feed, so that she is hungry and accepts it. Introduce only one food at a time, let her have it for 3-4 days and then introduce another food. Initially keep the consistency pouring/flowing and then thicken it according to her acceptance. Keep seasonings very mild, as babies don't generally like very strong flavours. You can give porridge of suji, sago, 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. Give cereals like rice with dal/khichdi form, porridges, small bites of chapatti, pasta, upma, idli etc. Dals /legumes well cooked. Start with mashed and bring to regular consistency as the toddler starts chewing. Finger foods like cutlets, hard boiled eggs, small sandwiches, rolls, whole fruits. Small pieces of foods that can be handled with spoon or fork. Veg desserts like carrot /pumpkin/ghia halwa. Spinach/carrot burfi. Hope it helps.
