Eating Problems:Baby not eating food
2014-11-13
Name: Sneha Rathod My 2 and a half year old baby was eating everything till last month and now he has literally stopped eating. He has become too picky and I do not know the reason for this. He does not like anything that I give be it fruits or vegetables. I am worried for his health. How can I make him eat his food happily, any ideas?

Hi Sneha, check with the child specialist dear and accordingly take some treatment. They will also provide you some natural remedy which will help you in treating your kid easily.

Hi Sneha, i would say ask him what he wants to eat as by this age kids do start talking. Give fruits in salad form which kids usually like to have. Milk and juices can be the best alternative

The same thing happened with my niece. She used to eat everything that was cooked and that too on her own, she used to drop a lot of it but still could manage to eat but then suddenly she stopped eating and got too picky.

There is nothing uncommon so don't worry. Many children get picky as they grow up actually almost every kid is the same. Keep trying to feed him fruits and vegetables. Feed him forcefully for some days and then see if he starts eating.

The best way to make babies eat is by distracting them. Do play roles tell stories about fruits and vegetables or you can also pretend that the spoon is a plane and is finding a way to land somewhere and in his mouth.

Not just small children but also teens make fuss for eating fruits and vegetables. If you want him to eat it you will have to find a way i which he doesn't find out that what he is eating is vegetables. Make the food look good.

Hello Sneha,
It would be better you need to consult the doctor so that they will help you with some medicine and your baby will eat and you need to feed them now and then you have to make them to eat.Post an message after consulting them to the doctor.

Hello Sneha Rathod,
I think you need to find out which taste does your child is preferring to eat.So that you will might to know which food is eager to eat.And do not get panic for every thing. Your baby will eat all type of food and you need to get patience.

Just like elder kids, babies have eating preferences. Some may enjoy wet foods,some may prefer finger foods, Some may want
mini-meals, while others may favor liquids over solids for a time. Make sure that you do not feed your child "junk" in order to get him to eat. Offer healthy options and he will develop a taste for them.

Is your baby better now? All the comments here are right. If he doesn't like to take fruits, try giving it to him as fruit pulp or juice (without a lot of sugar though). Make veggies look appealing, make funny shapes with them and play with him until he eats and so on. MY son became very picky when he turned 4. He simply refused to eat and since he was in school by then, I had a lot of grief from teachers as well as people at home. I tried fruit juice and making food more attractive. Also, try to come up with new varieties of dishes, mine started liking some of my trials :) Good Luck!

yaah junk food is very bad for the health even for adults so kids should be away from it definitely. even my small brother has very peculier taste for eating when he was baby he used to be like very chubby and all and used to eat all things and more sweet but now he is in first standard and don't eat at all except milk and chocolates and some very few things in meal. so her mother is very stressed every day that what she can give him for his tiffin as he should eat it and tried alot things like colorful veggies, fruits flafoured in chocolates so he will eat them.

Hi Sneha,
I can understand you concern well as it very similar with my kid. Don’t compel him to eat anything if he is not interested. Try to make some new dishes with his favourite vegetables or fruits. I think kids love cutlets, add few vegetables and make veg-cutlets. Try to give fruit salad and add ice cream if he rejects to eat only fruits. Keep trying and he will eat well for sure.

Hi.Don' t worry dear.At this age kids are likely to get bored with certain foods often.Offer him different combinations which you' ve not tried before.Whatever you make,keep it bite-sized for him and place it in front of him.See if he picks up on his own to eat.Try to keep it colourful and try introducing something healthy with something that is tasty and his favourite.Most kids like potatoes so you can mix other veggies and make small nuggets and give him or some other such cominations.Hope this helps.
