Toddlers are fussy eaters. They will go through phases when they eat well and also through some when they refuse everything. Don't worry, if it's just a phase he will outgrow it. In the meanwhile, try offering him variety of new foods if u think he's bored of the same old foods. U can also try deworming, if it's not been done already

Hello, I understand your concern of yours towards your son. If a child us not taking his feeds properly then it should be of any condition like fever, cold, stomach ache, burning urination, or any other discomfort. But if the baby is fine without all these then we need to concentrate on the surroundings that he plays because if he find anything on floor and he keeps in putting them in his mouth. And also now reduce the juice feeds and start giving him semi liquid diet. Meanwhile take him to children specialist. Thank you
