hey Akshat! what's his weight? if he is within the range, u need not worry. I believe u should be happy he takes veggies and salads. roti and rice have carbohydrates which are good for giving energy. look for substitutes such as homemade atta noodles, roti pizza, meethi roti, roti dipped in milk, rice kheer, rice based puddings etc.

Akshat 20 kgs is quite okay for a 6 year old. I am sure u don't want him to look chubby. as long as he is active and cheerful please don't panic.
