Hi Pratibha and Shobha.. I usually give 2 snacks a day to my daughter. She is 1 1/2. For elder kids this can be 3-4 . I usually give her a fruit, curd, makhanas(roasted) or any other dry fruit ( kishmish-not too much though, badaam etc)

Hi Devika, it's high time you start solids for your child .. Start gradually nd slowly with food items that are easy to digest such as Apple , banana etc .. Then move to simple cooked food like khichdi nd daal nd from there to more complex stuff like egg etc .. All the best

Hi Pranali my daughter is approx same age as your baby and is 9. 68 kg right now which doc said is average weight and normal growth at this stage . Pls don't be worried . I feel your baby's weight is not alarmingly low.. Still if you have doubts get checked with another doc or wait for a month or two and see what progress is there in the next check up . All the best

Hi Joyita I gave my daughter only 2-3 solid meals a day when she was under 1 . Rest was all milk and she was breast fed till she completed 1 year . Breast milk is essential for healthy growth of your baby .

Hi Monica as mentioned in my earlier comment , if your child is refusing a particular food item ; give it a break . If your son refuses to eat roti , leave it . Instead find a substitute .. A vegetable parantha with home made butter may be? Any innovation will do wonders with your child . They love trying different visually attractive stuff .. Make smilies with ketchup on parantha to make it look interesting .. Basically play around and I am sure your child will respond . All the best

Hi Pooja , hope you have tried different food items and variety with your baby . If your child doesn't like khichdi, try a combo of vegetable rice or curd rice .. Basically play around with different options and see what your baby likes . You can also try giving the same repetitive menu for a couple of days to set a eating pattern and then introduce other food items slowly . Always make meal times fun . Sit with baby , play games and make it a tension free exercise . Make sure you never ever force feed . Remember patience is the key .if you still have doubts ; speak to your doc about different food items that will suit your baby's health . All the best

Then in lunch he eats very small quantity of rice with dal. But this not his daily routine. He sometimes don't eat anything in lunch. Then in evening some times drink milk or fruit juice. In dinner again the same drama not wish to eat anything but generally eat kheer. He just don't like rotis and sab ji. Very much worried about his health please help.
