milk should be restricted to 500-550 ml maximum in a day, so that the child doesn't fill the stomach with milk only. Keep enough gap between his feeds, be it solid or milk to ensure that child is hungry. From one year of age you should start with three meal pattern, i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner along with two snacks. 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 his 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, 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,idli, dosa, uttapam,fruits etc. You can also read the following blog If these don't help, take advice of your paediatrician.
