Hi Swati it is fine dont worry give him rice that has been cooked properly dipped in dal. He still doesnt know how to chew so when you give him roti he cant swallow it hence he avoids eating it. What you can do is break the roti in small pieces and dip it in dal. That ways it will be easy to chew.

The problem starts because we initially start giving them semi liquid food and they get a habit of not chewing as its easy for them . But you can start with small quantities . Take small quantities of dal, rice mix them well and put little quantities at the side of his mouth while engaging him in play . Try to do this when he is hungry so that he tries to eat . In case of roti you can prepare some stuff rotis and give small bites to him to pick himself and eat . Children love to eat on their own . I was also facing the same problem so have started with these things . My daughter loves to have small bites of Chapati on her own . Hope this helps :)

Hey Swati .... U shud let him sit with u or full family .... Let him observe how u all r eating , chewing n swallowing food.... I tell u babies r great in mimicking ..... Though it will take time but make it fun activity n let him take his food by own.... He will gradually observe u n try to copy u.... N so he ll start chewing n eating by his own.... Best of luck
