My daughter has most of her teeth but still she wants liquid food and if I put some chunks in her mouth she just keeps the food on the side and even after half an hour its there I am very worried

Hi Kalki, I saw your issue. Dear please check. How do you feed her? You run after her for food? or She wants to eat independently? Make the food baby's choice. It does not mean to try new recipes. No, however change the style of serving. How? Simple, give food to everyone in house her food, serve her together, don't feed her alone. Don't run after her, make her run after you. Like this, Make food, Serve food to rest of the family and show it is very interesting and important which you don't want to give her. And see , she will take interest soon. This just the way you change the strategy and let her eat own her own. All the very best.

I have tried everything with her. I gave her mango, kiwi, papaya, oranges and all the tender fruits veggies and also tried rice but didn't work Whatever I put in her mouth she just keeps on her left side of the mouth and when I say her chew she starts crying She doesn't eat chocolates ice cream chips lollies. She doesn't bite any eatables But she bites her toys If I give her some paper or plastic she chews Sometimes I got frustrated I am really worried what should I do

Hey Kalika! This is normal, so don't worry, your LO is still in the phase of discovering chewing. Try semi solids, more liquidy stuff in the interim and then introduce more.

Try giving her soft small chunks like granules. So that she gets into the habit of chewing.
