hi got ur querry
this is a very common problem among kids. there may be some causes of this unwillingness for food
1. more feeding of liquid diet (milk, juice)
2. frequent or forceful feeding
3. more use of butter, ghee, oil in child's diet
if u find any other reason out of the above then avoid them. if u give ur child liquid diet than have at least 2.5 hrs gap and 3.5hrs gap between two solid diets
another thing which you should rule out is anemia and alteration of liver disfunction through blood test like cbc and lft. start proper treatment as per advice

healthy diet of child
a growing child needs protien riched, corbohydrate riched and calcium riched diet, like egg, milk, pulses and banana, custard apple, and jaggery
