My son is 1. 3yrs old. He still doesn't munch his food, instead simply swallows it. Rice, upma, dosa etc, all have to be in paste consistency. He bites dry items like biscuits but spits off. Doesn't move the tongue so that it mixes with saliva and can make it soft n swallow. Please suggest me how to make him munch his food n get to know the food taste.

Hi Smitha, My son too did not chew his food. it's now he has started chewing food. I think it's with the age that kids learn to chew. my son is 2. 4 now..... there are 2 suggestions that I have for you: 1. while eating food in front of him show him how you chew food. 2. till the time he learns to chew food properly, just give him mashed food.
