Child refused solid food. Is it due to teething? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
Good Evening Dr..
I am having a kid who has just completed 15 months..
Nice to hear it
is it due to teething?
Yes,it may be due to teething
We are just giving milk and kanji..
Please continue to give the same
Aren't you giving him other foods like fruits, dal and rice?
for the past one week he wants to have biscuits which I am not agreeing..
could you please help me what healthy snacks we can give to him..
Initially he used to take but now he's not at all taking..
You can give him biscuits, there is nothing wrong in it
sometimes he'll take orange juice ..
Please give him food that he likes
You can actually give him the normal food that you prepare at home
Do not give chapatis and rotis
You can give him Dal rice
Oh.. Ok Dr..
Sure Dr.. initially he used to take banana, apples..but now only not taking..
Do not give him hard food that are difficult to digest
It may be because of the teething
He may be in pain
Do not worry
He will eat again
we had not tried so far..
You can give corn flakes
but he's liking cruchy snacks
Try oats and corn flakes
They are good for him
is it ok if we could give plain flakes or only with milk..
oats - will it not reduce weight Dr?
Oats is good too
give the corn flakes with milk
It will help in better digestion
Ok... will try Dr..
Is there anything else I may help you with?
Is multi vitamin drops to be continued after 1 year?
We had given only until 1 year:(
There is no harm in continuing it
Many of the corn flakes were coming with sugar & flavours..
is there any specificication which to give and which not to give/.
Ideally speaking, No food is better than home made food
The grinded pulses, ragi malt
nothing like home prepared food
But you can still try them
Yes Dr.. until now we had never tried anything eelse..
There is no harm
So, why do you want to try now?
we are giving ragi malt and sathu maavu kanji only to him..
You should continue them
Now he wants something crunchy..
he's liking Parle Cheeselings..
which is loaded with salt..
Give him carrots, fruits to eat
that's why looking for a healthy alternative..
Cut pieces of fruits are good
You can give him chopped carrots which he can eat slowly
Stick to fruits and vegetables more
Packaged food is not good
Ok.. will try your guidelines Dr..
Do not worry
Home food is the best food for your son
Try these suggestions
It's my pleasure
