My kid is 1. 6 yr old. I usually give him khichdi,dal chawal,dalia and milk. But i often feel i should try out some more things. What else can he eat n is it ok if i feed him these things by laying down or should he sit n have his meals???

the child should be fed in sitting position only. You should include dalia, bajra, whole wheat, rice, ragi, different pulses, vegetables fruits, egg/fish/poultry, milk products etc. in his diet. These can be given as porridge, kheer, upma, khichri, chapatti/rice well mashed with pulses/gravies, scrambled eggs, custards, poha, idli, pulao etc.
