Thanks for writing to health care magic.

It is normal for infants of this age group to have their own food preferences.

It is normal for them to eat well for a few days and then they do not eat well for a few days.

It is normal for them to not to accept a particular food for some time. So we should not worry about that and try and reintroduce the same after some time. I suggest you not to worry regarding your baby.

You can monitor his growth and that will give a indication if you baby is doing well or not

Hope this helps.
Take care.
