Hi my son is 2.5 years old . He s not at all chewing any food. He s just eating well cooked food only, not eating apple and banana slices only eating puree. I'm worrying becoz he s gonna start schooling. How can he eat and what ll he eat at school. Please suggest any ideas to make him to eat

Priya dharshini it's very important to introduce texture by 8 months itself and introduce to family food. Babies that young can chew food with their strong gums, coming to your question did you try feeding dosa, soft roti as finger foods? Did you try eating infront of him? Make sound and chew, show him how to chew. You have to go cold turkey with puree, he may resist in the beginning and not eat but you have to be consistent and stop pureeing the food. Puffed rice mur mura makes a great finger food and he will be excited to chew, offer fried finger chips 🍟, thinly sliced carrot sticks. Try these and see, All the best.

Thanks Rebecca Prakash. I ll try
