hi Savi! please do away with biscuits and namkeen. just keep them out if sight. avoid having these in front of the child. Savi children love to Imitate, have a plate of fruit for yourself and ask him just once . bring attractive plates and spoons for him. serve him a little bit such as pomegranate kernels, raisins , apple slices etc. create attractive patterns with food such as cartoon characters and other interesting designs . children love food which please both eyes as well as their taste buds .. don't give up just keep praising him , give a smiley when he chews, narrate a story along how his favorite cartoon character used to chew and became so strong. hope this will be help to u!

Hi Savi, i understand, most of the child has same problem , they are served mashed foods thats why they dont want to chew. what you can do is to show him how to chew. Dine together and show him how to chew, ask him to look at your mouth. you can read this blog its really helpful. Hey! I find this Parenting blog really interesting. I suggest you have a look too: https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/how-to-help-your-child-eat-food-10-things-that-worked-for-me/744?ptref=sa0l000468400ko
