Answer: Hi dear, It has happened because you made it to happen.baby got addicted now.you need to stop this habit right away,as baby is not able to distinguish her own appetite and just gobbling since her while focus is on TV.they also won't understand the various taste of food.so please stop this .let baby eat less or even skip meal.once baby is hungry would eat anyway.so try this out for few days.you can entertain baby in meal time by telling stories,rhymes or just talking.

A home remedy thag I always use whevever my baby stops eating. Take a lemon put black salt in it and use toothpick to put it inside the lemon now put the lemon on a spoon and heat it till the black salt melts and goes inside the lemon. Now take it off the flame. Make ur child lick it. Trust me it works. Zinc helps in building appetite. Wheat bran, cashew nuts, and pumpkin seeds are good for improving the level of zinc in the body. Try incorporating these into your child's meals or snacks. Check with your child's doctor for zinc supplements as well. Hope it helps.

Question: My son does not eat food what I do
Answer: Hi dear, Most of the parents have this issue,that their babies are not eating enough.but honestly I would like to suggest you that stop worrying much at this stage.your baby is still growing and exploring lot of things around,including food.if your baby is active,healthy then donot worry.if she is little underweight also,donot worry,as long as she is meeting her milestones.intriducing variety of foods little little would encourage baby to taste.try making the meal time fun.sometimes we mothers are so busy in feeding ,that babies great bored.sing rhymes,and make it more fun.offer less food at a time.no matter if the baby has eaten just one spoon in lunch.baby wood eat more in breakfast,so donot stress.force feeding is never recommended.it would.never let baby understand what natural appetite means.and lead to obesity in adulthood.never show TV or mobile while feeding.force feeding would also stress your baby and could backfire by vomiting out.avoif giving junk foods like chips,biscuits,too much milk,chocolates etc.they kill the appetite.give fresh home cooked food.
