Aisha Fahad You can gradually introduce solid foods in diet, by giving one or two bites of it. You can give slice of apple/pear or stick of carrot to chew on. Try and make your child have meals with family. This would encourage him to start with solids. Show him chewing your foods. Give gaps between meals so that he is hungry enough to eat. Children also follow each other. Seeing other children eat solid food would also encourage him to chew.

Aisha Fahad Since your child is already one year now, you can avoid cooking special meals for him. Try to give idli mashed in daal, or poha or upma mashed in daal to begin with. Gradually over a period of one month's time thicken the consistency of food that you serve him. Have a fruit time wherein you serve fruits to all the members, so child will have no choice but to eat watching others. Similarly for dinner make him sit on a high chair and then serve food to him in a plate and he will soon Learn to eat. Here is a blog you might find useful.

Aisha Fahad Let your baby try something new. Give him some type of sticks to eat. Like potato sticks carrot sticks but only when you're in front of him. And give him some colourful food. Give him food to eat while playing with him. Whatever you are giving him, give something different than that. Baby is at teething stage at this time, so because of this also sometimes children do not think of taking food.
