How do I encourage my child to eat?

Q: My son is one year and three months old. I stopped feeding him last month. He doesn’t like to eat food. When he was six months old I used to give cerelac, idli, cooked rice, etc. When he was nine months I gave him fruits like banana, apple, orange, mangoes and milk. He doesn’t like it too much. I am giving him milk in a tumbler with as spoon. He likes it a little. Nowadays, he totally avoids food. He doesn’t like to eat at all. I consulted a doctor who gave livomyn syrup for good digestion and to promote hunger but still there is no improvement. Please give me a good solution to help my child eat better? He has a below average weight of 10 kg.

A:10 kg is a good weight for 1 year+ age. The only solution is to keep trying interesting food. There is no short cut. Do not worry about intake if weight gain is good.
