Question: Hi...my baby is not eating vegetables and roti she eats only in liquid
Answer: Dear this isn't good. At 23 months ur baby should be eating everything infact the same what food you are eating should be ur baby's food as well by now. Please start giving solids.
The food for 23 month old baby should be nutritious.Your toddler’s diet should include the following:
1.) Staples such as rice, breads, and pasta
2.) Protein rich foods such as meats, eggs, pulses or cereals
3.) Dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and cheese
4.) Water and juices
5.) Fruits and vegetables
6.) Fats and sugar within limits
Toddler’s meals can be homemade, or ready-made baby foods, or a combination of both. Your selection should ensure that his meals contain adequate nutrition.
If you want to ensure your toddler has balanced meals, you can adhere to the following portions.
1.) Serve him one cup of vegetables daily.
2.) Include a daily serving of one cup of seasonal fruits or approximately six ounces of fruit juice.
3.) Ensure that he eats three servings of ½ cup of rice, breads or cereals, or a slice of bread in a day.
4.) Add two daily servings of an egg or an ounce of meat or lentils in his diet plan.
5.) Give him two daily servings of a cup of milk or yogurt or two ounces of cheese (natural or processed).
Introducing healthy eating habits from an early age can prove to be a positive step toward raising a healthy and strong child.
Here are some more tips you can follow to make your little one perform better at the dinner table :-
a.) Mealtimes should be fun and not a battle. You should not force or bribe your child to finish his meals.
b.) Portions should be just right. Do not indulge your baby by serving what he likes in excess, as it can lead to a feeling of bloating and indigestion.
c.) Do not lose heart if your child has not had enough at lunch. Instead, offer him a nutritious snack after a few hours.
d.) Dinner time should be the perfect time for the family to bond together. The ambiance should be cheerful, and you should establish a routine for mealtimes. It should be an event that your baby looks forward to and enjoys.
e.) As your baby grows, you have to try and be a good role model for him. As a parent, if you follow healthy eating habits then your toddler too will learn to eat right soon.
Hopw this helps.
