Answer: Hi.. Dear you need to experiment with your baby's favourite choices.. Make new dishes and see which your toddler likes.. You can make different porridges (vegetable khichdi, lentils and rice, only veggies), make different soups, make mashed potatoes dishes (tikki or cutlets), try giving brown bread pizza (using pizza sauce and cheese), make custard of seasonal fruits, suji or atta halwa, I am sure your baby will like some out of these..Also, try to include wheat bran, cashew nuts, and pumpkin seeds in your child 's meal.. It helps in building appetite.

Question: My baby boy never eats food. He only drinks milk.. What can i do for that
Answer: Hi dear. you will have to arise your babies interest in eating and use colourful bowls and plates for your baby which must have his favourite cartoon characters on it and also let her eat in the company of others yourself should give company to your baby while eating and never feed your baby forcefully. and maybe your baby is not feeling like hitting due to hot weather so you should offer cold feed to your baby for example fruit custard curd yoghurt milkshake homemade ice cream and let your baby eat with his own hands because baby like to eat in that way and give more of a single food for example cucumber slices Apple slices , carrot slices. don't worry dear why you should not take a stress of the babies are used to behave this way and they are really choosy in eating so you should offer new new food items to your baby and try to understand the taste of your baby I will he like more of a salt or a sweet dishes. and some time baby don't feel like eating due to deficiency of iron or some particular vitamin so if this is the case a regular checkup should be done and proper supplements should be given by consulting your doctor. Good luck
