my baby is 18 months old he is not eating chapati or rice easily ..what food i shall provide which is good and healthy. please suggest

Hi Swagati. Try and give food in different and interesting ways to your child. Few suggestions from Babychakra expert Sonali Shivlani as follows :

Many babies this age are still not ready to eat foods with texture and prefer puréed foods. You can mix roti with dal and vegetables and purée and offer. However do try and give a couple of bites regularly of soft roti pieces to help develop the taste and habit.

You can also try other grains like nachni and oats in the form of a vegetable porridge. If the baby likes soft foods try idli and dosa with some vegetables as finger foods to help baby adapt to eating textured foods.

Try apple puree or sweet oats. As compared to salt , babies like sweet food. grind chapati in mixie with little bit of ghee and sugar. Grate carrot or Pumpkin and mix it in wheat flour with some sugar in it and prepare a pancake of it on tawa. My baby loves these pancakes.

thanks everyone i started providing him as u ol mentnd
