Pediatrician 's  Response

a child of this age group should be eating almost everything that his family does minus spices and chillies

a good calorie diet rich in nutrients should be provided including milk, egg. one should not forget to add dal to rice as this mixture will complete protein requirement

give him lot of vegetables, fruits etc.....they are rich in minerals and vitamins

if he does not have a single teeth till this age pl get him examined by a pediatrician

take care
