Not eating food properly
Hello Drs, My son is now 17 month old. He is not eating food properly these days. Earlier he used to have around one chapati or bowl of rice with gravy that used to cook regularly for all of us In mid meal I used to serve him juice, bottle full of cow milk, sheera erc... But from last few days he stopped eating chapati & rice completely. Instead he is having banana, tetra pack/real fruit juice, fruit milks shake etc. Is it something worry about. He switched from solid food to fruit almost & making faces when takes bites of solid food or at times throwing it out. He also looks more skinnier than earlier but very much active. Please guide. Thanks

Give him deworming medicines if not given in last 6 month. Avoid giving ready made foods and juices. Stop screen time, all this will help you in improving your child’s diet.

Hi pls check if he has any oral ulcers or teething or fever If he is otherwise well nothing to worry .Avoid packed fruit juices..give him rice porridge or ragi porridge if he prefers only semi solid or liquids so that he gets some carbohydrates.Give a weeks time will settle on its own.
