Question: My son is two years old he is not chewing food
Its because the of the texture, since no texture was not introduced at an early age he is used to have pureed food.
Try giving finger food instead. Big enough for him to hold and chomp. Something soft like a piece of ripe guava, or cooked carrot or pumpkin, or steamed apple. Let him hold and eat it. Even better is something crunchy that breaks up easily in the mouth like a paper dosa or rawa uttapam.
It is normal to gag when they first start solids (puree does not really count in terms of texture) is very normal. It will gradually get better as he gets used to manipulate the food in the mouth. But if you leave it too long, the gag reflex is actually going to stay further so it is more difficult for baby to make the transition.
Hope this helps!
