Thanks for writing to us.
To check for any worms in the abdomen, you can get his stool examined for ova, cysts and parasites and occult blood at your nearest laboratory. Since your child is one year old, yopu can start giving him other foods like dal rice, etc.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
