Dear parents,  My baby is 11 month year old now.  He is refusing to eat rice.  I have tried  different curry(without chilly) for him.  I want him to have a habit of taking rice regularly, since the common food of kerala is rice and curry.  How can I buid up such a habit or how can I make him like rice?

Very considering suggestion Anurima, Thank you. Since I am working now, i cannot attend baby from 8 am to 6 pm. They were with my in-laws. My mother-in-law gives a good care. So I am not worried about that. But She cannot give enough food if baby refuse to eat. because she does not have such thoughts that babies should eat enough food to get their weight and immunity. That is the reason for my anxiety.

Hi Dimple. I give my children rice everyday too as we have been brought up eating rice everyday! Children's tastes change all the time so your son may get used to the food soon. It is very important to keep your cool at mealtimes as if we get stressed, children too get anxious and this affects their appetite. My daughter was a very fussy as a baby and I used to lose my cool at every meal. Now when I look back, I feel I should have tried other ways to make mealtimes fun rather than stressing everyone out. As Neha suggested, you could give your son some food to eat himself and forget about the mess. Also, if the dish is dry, children have difficulty swallowing. On the other hand, mashed rice with some extra gravy will go down quicker :)

hey Dimple, you are not alone, we all lose our patience with kids.. as Neha suggested, no one likes being force fed the same thing everyday , so keep it real by giving him rice twice - thrice a week..

Try changing the menu. Even my son nw 2. 5 yrs old still dosent enjoy rice. We hv our food preferences so do the kids. Give rice once in a while n try somthing else like vegetable soup or fresh fruit juices in summer. Kids also love coconut water. And have patience... kids are vry moody.
