Hello Lia,

Thank you for the question.

The condition of children who have difficulty eating is often the case, especially when the child turns 1 year old. This is because the child's growth is not as fast as before, so the energy needed is also not as much as before, so the child starts to want to reduce his food. In addition, 1 year olds are still in the period of MPASI, and many food variants can become MPASI, and MPASI does not have to be merely contained in rice. The most important thing is that the child's nutrition is monitored adequately, and you can judge it by calculating it for a week, not per day.

Here are tips for children to want to eat:

 Vary MPASI. If the child has difficulty eating rice, you can increase the portion of other types of food such as fruits that contain high energy, for example avocados and bananas. Pay attention to the type of food the child likes, and try to give the child the food he likes, of course it must be food with high nutrition. Also introduce other foods, by provoking their interest by enjoying the food in front of them. Do not force children to spend food that does not like, because it will make it become tasteless and consider eating as an unpleasant activity. Monitor the adequacy of children's meals for a week. Monitor body weight too. Do not forget to control your pediatrician to assess its growth and development periodically. Hope this helps :)

Regards,
