This is a common problem as introducing solid foods is done after 1 year which causes habituation of taste is not established. Start solids after completing 5 months and gradually introduce all home made foods by 1 year including non veg. This paves way for good appetite and amount of foods eaten.
Next Steps
First thing in the morning should be solid food not milk
