Hi dear Shruti! I can understand how stressful this cud be for u. Wat I suggest u cud do is to add colour n design to her dish. For example: u cud make spongebob squarepants , hello kitty shape sandwiches or different animal shapes sandwiches in which u can fill potato cheese, paneer, omellette, etc. make a parantha with grinded spinach, to give green colour or puréed carrot or green peas parantha etc. to give colour, taste a well as nutrition. As u have mentioned she loves to have milk u cud try making milk based recipes like moussse, Kheers, custard with fruits in it. Or u cud add different shapes chocos to milk. If she likes sweet taste harp on that and make more of sweet dishes, n if salty try making, poha, idli, dosa dokhla etc. do not force feed. Just reward her n praise for trying a new dish. On a first try she might just take two spoons. Just do not get disheartened. Count this as a successful attempt. Next day try same dish may be she likes it even more n take more spoons. U cud try giving her in attractive plates make her sit on dining table with table laid well. It is advisable u cud serve her meals with whole family so that the child feels since everyone is eating I shd too do so. The whole recipe to make her eat includes ingredients such as love, appreciation, praise, motivation, colour, variety n taking care of her choice, hope this helps!
