    How to make my kid eat
    jeets posted:
    My daughter is 17 months old, she is having very tough time to eat.

    We are making her play which ever she is interested in e.g water.

    Or watching rhymes. When she is involved in playing or wathing tv, we feed her.

    These days, she is not responding to it either. She is spitting the food and trying to have only milk.

    We use to allow her to play in corridor when making her eat, and she is running into others house and not eating any thing.

    Please suggest.
