My daughter is 12 months old. I started giving food from 7months as per doctors suggestion. she used to eat nicely. but from her 10 month she stopped eating little by little and now she doesn't accept food at all. Now, she is on just formula milk. I tired different taste recipes but no use. she doesn't like fruits also. pls suggest me how to make her to eat?

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 or solid, depending on child's preference and swallowing/chewing capacity. To help in her fruit intake read the following blog on our website
