SAME TO SAME. 4 year old boy here....he is either busy playing cars ...or just sleepy or....bla bla. I try to make eating fun. Make something new or old dish but new way of presenting ( smiley face roti) ...distract n eat. I keep telling him if he doesnt eat he wont grow

Fun recipes have a look

Hi, make different types of dish as per his likes everyday.. Yes all kids at this age r like tht.. Thy don't concentrate much on food... Try to keep a good story book or his favorite games near him n explain everything n feed tht time... Say good boy eats soon n tell good manners of eating..

hi. pls list his eatimg schdule ?

She will have breakfast by 9, if she will eat good amount I will put some fruits or sprouts or boiled veggies to her snacks box..
If she won't eat bf properly I will out 1 chapati with sabzi.. And one good thing is whatever is put in box will be finished at school...
But snacks time at school is 11 on clock...
She comes home by 1.30pm and by 2 she will have lunch that after fussing a lot she will eat half chapati or a little rice either of them..
Evening I give some healthy snacks like tikki with sprouts  shallow fried, veg sandwich n all... If nothing I give some biscuits followed by milk... Dinner ka to poocho hi mat... She won't even eat 4 bites of food....
Can any body suggest how will I improve her appetite n make her eat.
