My 2yr old girl just swallows everything.... she finds it very hard to chew food. Thastwhy all i can give her khichrri, oats porridge etc etc. I feel her diet is very poor... no wonder she is only 12kg... she was only 2. 5kg during birth but very active though. Pls help.

Hi, really good information. I do have a question, i am confused as to why my sons interest to a particular food ( for e. g. If he was eating bananas and plantains before 3 weeks now he hates it). This is quiet upsetting, i try to bring variety in his feeds but all of sudden if he dislikes things What should i do?

Hi Sunayana, this could be a side effect of some anti biotics or medicines also. You should give her some probiotic supplement such as enterogermina (check with your doctor) or if she is old enough give her yakult to get her stomach health back and that will gradually improve appetite. also give her gut friendly foods such as dahi. once her gut is healthy, her body will respond better to food and she will get her appetite back.

I do all of the above but my daughter straight away says a big 'No' to food. She was ok with food till sometime ago but lost her appetite since she fell ill twice in the month of October. I am really worried about her, she is getting weak.

definitely kids would not accept these tricks(infact any tricks) relating to food. you would be surprised to see new tricks adopted by them to decline. But keep trying. do the same for certain days. (remember the movie laage raho munna bhai) then a small change would be there. try involving him with at this point, like get a cake knife and ask him to cut banana. as i mentioned never worry about the mess. If he understand better show him the poor children about the food they are eating,resulting weakness. ask his teacher in the class to tell them about the results of not having proper food atleast for week and appreciate a student for eating good for that week. this would work.

Very nice blog. But somehow it doesn't work with my kid as he doesn't like to try anything new even if it is done in a creative way. Any ideas or suggestions to change his mindset.
