 Hi Members

Iam very worried about my son who is 1 year 7 months old now.   Earier when he z a months baby he used to have food  ( including two meals of rice ) without any fuss.... Now he has become so fussy eater that he is not at all eating rice.... And he will have tiffin items without much problem....  iam so worried about him.... pl suggest me any substitute for rice....   Also ,, let me know what exactly will be the prompt quantity of food that a baby of this age should take .. When we visited doctor recently he said he is healthy.. but my concern is that he is not eating   as he used to eat earlier... but he is very active.


Eagerly waiting for your reply

Hi There,

   I am a Dad of similar age group. My daughter does the same. No No for rice. Please ensure you are giving him the daily recommended values of all nutritions like proteins and carbohydrates in any form. Just rice does not fulfill his needs. Give him what he likes and this changes everyday. Try Chapathi, Dal Mixed Dosa and include a formula powder. Because cow's milk is not balanced for toddlers. Dont worry about rice...Ensure RDA and happy running behind...
