Hallo - This is a common problem that Now a days most of the children in this age do no like foods to eat except junk like chips etc. So mothers v to be more patient to take time for staple meals atleast rice, roti etc. There is no alternative. Mother can prepare porridge, Dalia,dal soup, egg, fish like rohu,catla ( based on clean water). can give milk products instead of milk like chana, paner, curd, some mix vegetables ,sprouts at good. low oil,low cream but more nutritional ingredients/ foods are best for children..Can add banana,fruits juices 200ml per day. some more as he likes in dressing forms. .
