u can try differentt milk shake, make ice cream at home, u can make pizza(pizza base can make at home check on youtube.... )in pizza u can hide lods of nuitritios thing in it... idli and uttapam is also very nuitritius... use multigrain bread... can make fruit curd.. If she extremely fussy.. i wud suggest u to start pediasure... it suppliement and helps child to gain weight. One most imp thing is tht... Give Pediasure after dinner only... dont give her pediasure during the day time as it is too heavy n child wont feel hungry....

i had made a powder of black channa(rich of Iron)... n I put one spoon in atta for making my son(3. 5yrs) paratha or chappati... or I can suggest u one more thing... u can buy Ramdev baba pitanjali flour(its mix of 7 grain)... this way u can give more nuitrition... without letting her know. Put all nuts in grinder dates, almond, Kaju, cucumber seeds etc.. and make its small ladu... give one everyday... its helps to enhance child immunity and helps to grow as well.

Dear Abhilasha, John has rightly suggested that we should not force feed and should watch out for particular likes and dislikes to guide us. I would further like to suggest some approaches that you may try - 1) Try to adopt fixed meal times 2) Give options(of-course healthy ones) and let the child decide what to have, the child may ask some biscuits/choclates... but you stick to options and offer a piece or two of the demanded items as reward for finishing the food without fuss 3) Your child might resort to temper tantrums but be polite, loving and firm about your approach - declare that though she might be angry at you but you really love her but at the same time you cannot compromise her health 4) make meal times fun - read stories, listen to songs, share old memories, discuss some exciting thing about future 5) Be watchful that your child doesn't kill her appetite by drinking artificial juices or anything else 5) let her team up with you to make healthy snacks - like veg sandwith, sprouts, omlet, fruit salad... 6) play games with her and let her play mom and you fusssy kid and have lots of fun, or better let her become a beautiful teacher and ask her to educate kids about the benefits of healthy eating..... OHHH i can go on and on AND on ... as a mom of two kiddies I have done all this and more ;) and had a lot of fun with the fuss too. HOPE that helps

my earlier post was interrupted; sorry. So go ahead and let her try different types of food. you may ultimately discover her specific likes. but do not, under any circumstances compel her to eat more. try apples / banana slices dipped in honey / cashew / raisins. your girl may take to some of them well.

let her eat what she likes best. my 5-yr old boy eats only roti, rice with ghee, chicken without any masala and cheese. of course he does like his pepsi and chips, but he is averse to so many things that we as parents are used to.
