My 18 months old son eats properly but just doesn't want to eat any fruits. I want him to eat atleast a fruit a day. Please share some ideas on how can I start him on fruits.

Hi Shipra. This is a common problem among children. They dont want to eat fruits of vegetables. Since summer is here, you could disguise fruits and offer your child. Make mango lassi, banana smoothie, apple puree (do not add sugar) etc. Also sit and eat a fruit with your child, he may just copy you and eat his fruit :) Hope this helps.

you can try to cut the fruits in different shapes. weave a story around how each fruit will help him.
