Hi Sneha, As I can see into your profile your son has become two years old, still he does swallow the food. It's normal at his age. You keep on introducing new things to him. Children at this age are afraid of chewing and then swallow concept. They feel safe comfortable while taking liquid and semi-solid diet. But mash the food item a bit, to avoid risk while eating. Give him some more time, At the age of two, children develop thinking process as well. They are sometimes confused with this chewing concept and just swallow the food. And some are lazy , they don't want to chew, it seems to them like a hard work. Steadily and slowly they would automatically strat chewing. Some children have late teething process that's also an issue with the concept of chewing becomes late. So, Give semi - solid food to your child and some times give him slice of apple,cucumber,carrot etc. You must have notice your child just bite and spite all the items like that. Actually that's all learning part of knowing solid food. Slowly and gradually he will start eating each and every thing.
