The best advice is to: choose wholegrain high fibre foods (such as bread, with seeds, brown rice and pasta) instead of white processed foods (white bread, rice and pasta eat more fruit and vegetables, including lentils and beans avoid saturated ‘bad’ fats, such as fried foods, pastry, biscuits, pies and cakes. eat more unsaturated ‘good’ fats, such as avocados, nuts, oily fish and seeds avoid sugary food and drink, such as sweets, biscuits, cakes and fizzy drinks. Practise good hygiene and proper food handling. - The child should be fed from a separate bowl and all utensils used should be thoroughly washed - Look into the eyes while feeding the child. Be patient, encouraging and loving. - Do not force feed. - Self-feeding must be encouraged early on - Children have a small stomach, so make every bite count A combination of continued breastfeeding for at least 2 years along with timely and adequate complementary feeding is the most reliable option to provide optimum nutrition to the child

Thank you doctor.. Wil follow aa u said
