Thanks for writing to health care magic.

No do not give junk foods like that.

Do not stop breast feeding also. You should continue that till 20 months.

Encourage her to have a balanced diet including fruits and vegetables.

Babies in that age group should be encouraged to self feed and self feed along with the family.
They should not be force fed in front of a TV

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
