Sometimes mealtime becomes battle-time. When Svadhi turned 9 months, I brought her for a regular checkup at the Klinik Ibu & Anak TTDI and the nurse advised me to stop pureeing her food and start feeding her coarser textures. At the first few attempts, she tried her new-textured food but gagged. And after that, she refuses to open her mouth. Her only favorite food is banana so I used to mash the banana and mix it with her porridge (with carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, some lentils and cucumber in it) and she will happily eat it. But lately she has learned to eat the whole banana after peeling the skin and refused to eat her porridge even with some mashed banana in it. Now I have to find some other way to encourage her to eat.

Meal time becomes facial time
