  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    At one one half year, breast feeds contributes very less to over all nutrition of child. So at 1.5 year you should gradually stop giving breast feeds and give him solid diet as much he eats. As you haven't told your child's growth parameter so can't comment on his current nutritional status. Subjective feeling of being child weak doesn't always indicate poor growth.
    See this article for what and how to feed your toddler: http://medimetry.com/a/feeding-toddler/

      The toddler years are a time for learning. Toddlers are learning about new foods at a time when long term eating patterns are being created. It is normal for toddlers to be fussy eaters.
      Offer your child a variety of healthy foods. Let your child choose which foods and how much they want to eat. Talk about new foods.Offer a new food with one that your child likes.You may need to offer new foods 10 times or more, before a child will taste it.
      Stay calm and positive.
      Set a good example and let your child see you enjoying healthy foods.
      Your child may dislike some foods - that's okay.
      Keep a regular eating routine and avoid delays to meals. Children don't eat well when they are tired. Offer a choice of two healthy foods. Let your child decide which one and how much to eat. Do not give in to him nagging for his favourite foods. A healthy children will not starve themselves
      Calmly remove any uneaten food. If practical and safe you could try offering the uneaten food again if your child is hungry before the next meal or snack.
