my son is 18 months old. He is not ready to eat dosa or chapati. He eats rice , upma type foods or mashed foods. he is not likely to eat finger foods like fruits and veggies. Even upma and rice he swallow. He used to eat few bits of chapati but he suddenly stopped after I introduce dosa. I am trying to help him chew from the month of 10 where he rejected all the time till now. He dont let me to touch his teeth even to clean. Please help me as it's really stressing.

I hope you are doing well. Please try these tips and instead of dosa you can try idli/pancakes/uttapam with mashed veggies :) Try and experiment with his food. Try to give him different veggies and fruits every day. Always try to sit together for meals so that he sees it and eats it. Make his food more presentable so that he enjoys eating it. Engage him in your talks and try to give him a small quantity at one time. Avoid force-feeding your child.
