Hi dear SHweta! So ur case is no different from all of us who keep running behind r children so as to ensure that they meet their daily nutritional requirements. Well it is advisable if ur child does not like chapati , u cud try dosa, with stuffing of potato or paneer, soya bean chura etc, u cud give pancakes which has eggs, milk with honey or u cud try uttapam with chopped vegetable as topping or pizza made out of roti with cheese topping n panner cubes. As far as milk is concerned u cud try custard,puddings, sabudana kheer, suji kheer etc. curd can also be served as raita with tomato or cut cucumber or even plain boondi etc. or u cud try upma with vegetables, poha with chopped vegetables groundnut, or u cud try meethi roti in which u cud put sugar n mix it with water to make a batter n then spread on tawa n cook it like dosa with oil. Or u cud give pulao n give one egg in any form. There r n no. Of options. U cud try one option and add colour shapes, taste, novelty, variety to the menu I am sure he will not be able to resist it. All d best!
