My question: I am XXXXXXX my elder son is of 7 years, but very troublesome with taking food, he has a long school hours from 8.00 to 3.00 pm.
He always wants roti, bread, poori. but not happy in taking rice meals nor vegetables associated with the main course.
Regularly we all go for de-worming, still there is no sign on his improvement appetite on hunger and in take of food. Also he won't like Curd or butter milk. Milk also should be mixed with boost/complan and that too one glass per day.

Every week, i get fresh green or vegetables, all they are need is potato or ladies finger.

Kindly help me on the same.
