Answer: Dear, as ur baby is not having her food, there can be some reasons. Babies also want some change in their taste. May be she is not liking the taste of the food, or it's not giving her comfort. And even she is not having her digestion properly. So, it's best to cosult her nutritionist for better help. Take care. Thank u.
Question: How to make my baby eat her food? She doesn't eats anything by heart. What to do??
Answer: Hi dear,
Most babies are fussy eaters and that is not an exception but a rule,so do not stress. I will give you some handy tips and tricks to handle it
1- Make sure your baby is having enough play time. That would ensure she gets hungry and appreciates her food.
2.Give her plenty varieties of food.Not just same old khichidi everyday .introducing variety of food would ensure her curiosity to taste more food.make it colorful by adding various colored veggies.You can also make the food look more attractive by giving it different shapes familiar to her.
3.Since your daughter is 18 month old,you can involve her in simple meal cooking. Like making pancakes,she can assist in mixing the batter with spoon. She can help you adding spices or sugar in food etc. Taking her to buy grocery,would also interest her in understanding various veggies and fruits.
4. Make it funny by giving names to certain foods.like peas can be named 'power balls', cauliflower can be' mini trees',carrot slices can be ' orange swords' etc
5.last but not the least,relax."raising good eaters takes years". Never get overwhelmed by your neighbour's kid who is a happy Easter and yours is not. Every kid is different. Some takes time and challenges their mommies.
