Answer:
keep a gap of at least 2-3 hours between the feeds be it milk or solid and don't let the child eat in between. Fix meal times for the child, that is with family meal timings. This would ensure that the child is hungry enough for his feed. You can give variety in his meals like porridge of suji, sagi, 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,fruits etc. This would ensure that child is not bored of the same foods and would increase his acceptance. Encourage the child to indulge in more outdoor games and activities to increase appetite
