Hi Sudipta. My daughter too was a fussy eater and had cerelac until almost 2 and half years of age! I dont think there is anything wrong in giving her cerelac now as it contains some essential nutrients. You may want to give her some home made food too just like the powder you mentioned. You could try giving her khichri, porridge etc. She may not like eating them initially but do keep offering her a variety to help her develop the taste. Please take a look at the following link. It is a blog with recipes for toddlers. You may try to make some of the recipes. Here it is: https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/healthy-and-fun-food-options-for-your-toddler/195

Hey Sudipta, at 2 years a child can eat most of the things that adults do and infact they need a diet of a mix of all kinds of foods for an overall development of mind and body, you will just have to persist with your child and try different things, something is bound to click. At this stage it is more about developing her taste buds so alternating between sweet and savory foods may perhaps help your child in the long run . The blog that anurima is talking about is written by me and believe me these recipes are tried and tested on a super fussy eater ( my daughter )... so we have proof that there is hope.. :-)

Hi sudipta you can certainly continue with cerelac, there's no harm in it. But in addition to it you can also start with semi solid and solid foods as well like khichdi, dalia, oats pudding and all. Let your little one start develop a taste for other things as well and these are also nutrition packed, so no worries there as well.

Hi Saleem Pasha Muhammad Try pinch of jeera power, dhanya power, hing in your child' rice..... It will not change the color of rice but will change the taste .... Let him develop his taste buds through pinch of spices... As he used to all this he will eat everything
