That's ok. He will learn slowly. But remind him everytime that he needs to chew food .

hi Shabana! how r u!I understand your concerns. u could start afresh by giving him munchies say wafers, crunchy sticks etc to chew or paneer cubes , anything of his choice which is handy. This all require to be chewed and can't be swallowed as it is. bring a change in the food being served. u could give him semi solid food like dals , Dalia's, etc gradually to solid food like scrambled eggs, omelettes, poha , upma , dosa , followed by wadas, pao bhaji etc. introduce one dish at a time and praise him for tasting it. it is quite possible he might take 4/5 or even more trials to like a dish . Shabana it would require u to be patient and consistent in your efforts. u could give motivation through praise, stars n smileys, and also u need to make him have food with the entire family on dinner table. make meal time fun time. hope this helps!
