Hi ma'am.. The ages between 1-3 are very crucial for a child as most good and healthy habits are formed in these years. It is also in these years that these small children grow a lot, and they need more energy and calories to thrive. Children this age have smaller stomachs, so they cannot get all calories from 3 straight meals and may need multiple meal times to boost energy intake..
Cereals: Now is the time to start with finger foods or foods which the child can handle herself. So now besides the usual mashed rice/chapatti or porridge you can give small bite size ofchapatti/parantha or even rice with vegetable/egg/dal/chicken. Add extra spoon of ghee or butter to the chapattior rice. Paranthas/dosa can be stuffed with potato, paneer, cheese etc.
