My daughter is 11 months old. But she still does not eat anything. wen we try to feed her she hardly has 3 spoons that is touches the food 3 or 4 times and shuts her mouth. I have tried cerelac banana apple carrot cereals pomegranate juice etc.. but in vain. I am worried regarding her weight too. Her birth weight was 1. 970 kgs and now she is 7. 2kgs. please advice me and let me know if anyone faced this issue. please give me some tips or am I not taking the right kind of care. Thanks in advance.nutrition Corner
you may maximum offer a child in this age 3 solid feeds and 3-4 milk feeds. Keep enough gap between her feeds, be it solid or milk to ensure that she is hungry. Again total milk amount can be between 500-650 ml maximum in a day, so that the child doesn't fill her stomach with milk only. Introduce one new food at a time, let the child accept it and gets used to it for few days. Introduce another new food only after a week. Do not introduce new foods back to back, it may confuse the child and would lower her acceptance. Try and keep the consistency thin to semi solid, depending on child's preference and swallowing/chewing capacity. You can give porridge of suji, sago, dalia, rice flakes, ragi etc. Kheer of apple, rice etc. , upma, soft scrambled egg yolk, thin dal, soups, mashed veggies, boiled mashed potato, sweet potato, mashed banana, stewed fruits etc.Hope this helps.
