my daughter eats only cerelac does not eat properly our regular food like rice sambar etc. according to earlier videos on fussy eating habits of babies I tried everything like giving chapati rolls, but still she doesn't eat. I give cerelac morning by 10am later I try to feed her rice by 1pm. she always resist to eat n always wants salt to eat. I am not getting wat she likes. so tat I can prepare her the same dish all d time. there is not a single food which she likes eating. worried how to handle this if she doesn't get adjusted to our regular food. shall I stop cerelac?

Answer:
Hope you are doing. You can try these tips. Try and experiment with her food. Try to give her different veggies and fruits everyday. Always try to sit together for meals so that she sees it and eats it. Make her food more presentable so that he enjoys eating it. Engage her in your talks and try to give her a small quantity at one time. Avoid force feeding your child. Feed her in small quantities. If she refuses a particular food today,try to re-introduce it after 1 week in another form. Try different foods like Idlis/Chilla/home-made pizza (on a roti)/Dosa/uttapam/Soups/Khichdis/Fried rice (no ajinomoto)/Sandwiches/Frankies. Also does she crave salt often ? how long has this been going on ? Yes once she is use to the regular food please stop cerelac :)
