Answer: You can follow these steps to help your child eat well
Sit and eat with your child.
Show your child what eating healthy is like. You are your child's best role model. They will learn to eat and explore new foods by watching what you do.
Offer new foods many times.
Children often need to see, smell, and touch a food many times before tasting it. Your child may need to taste a food many times before they eat it. Continue to offer new foods and include foods your child has refused in the past.
Give your child enough time to eat.
Young children learn by touching, smelling and looking at foods. Give your child time to learn about the foods you offer. Learning to use a spoon and fork also takes time. Plan time to sit and eat slowly with your child. A mess is also part of learning how to eat.
Try offering the same food in different ways.
Be patient. Keep giving your child foods made in different ways: raw, cooked (steamed, roasted), in stews, soups and sauces. If your child likes vegetables cooked a certain way, give them other vegetables made that same way.
Question:My baby is 1 year old. He does not prefer any food. What can I do.
Darling my daughter went through the same thing. I talked to my doc and he said that a child her age will not starve themselves. I was very lucky thought that my LO liked bread, cheese, and crackers. so many diners that is all she had to eat. i still tried new foods finally one day i gave her a couple bites of prantha and she loved it. She will eat any kind of paranthas now. she also loves yogart. don't give up. like they say so many things this too will pass. i know it is very fustrating and breaks ur heart that she is not eting, but like my doc said when she is really hungry she will eat. I have never heard of a child that went through a not eating state and never got out of it. hope this helps you!!!
