    hi vidhya,

    you can try upma, poha, dosa, oothappam, parathas, pongal, adai etc. If he doesn't eat before 8 AM (normal for a kid), pack the breakfast for the snack break at school. My DD at that age wouldn't feel hungry in the mornings. So I would usually give her some fruit at home and pack breakfast for snack break.

    You can try:
    1. Oatmeal with fresh fruit
    2. Dalia (Broken Wheat Porridge)
    3. Chapati mashed in Dal
    4. Omelette (if you eat eggs)
    5. Mashed Veggies
    6. Upma - can be made watery and given
    7. Will he eat fruits - Banna/Mango/Apple etc ?

    He is 2.5 years, give all what you eat. Chapatis, parathas - cut into pieces , it will be easy and safe for child to eat.

    start with easily dessolvable finger foods; cheerios, goldfish crackers, tiny cut fruits, etc so he can chew super easily. I started my daughter on self feeding those finger foods at 8 months old! Pick a time in the day that he's super hungry, energetic, AND well rested and give him those tiny pieces to self feed. I imagine that since you're in India, he probably goes to bed very late so he is still super tired and sleepy at 7AM when you feed him breakfast so maybe start with the finger foods in the late afternoon when he wakes up from nap or early evening when both his hunger and energy levels are highest. I know it's hard to get to sleep early in India, but if you can aim to lay down with him around 8PM at night (dinner at 6PM) so he'll get his full 10-11 hours of nightly sleep so he'll wake up both hungry and well rested and eat breakfast better. My daughter is now 4 1/2 and wakes up at 6:30AM DEMANDING breakfast each morning! Lucky me that she wants to eat when she wakes up! But the downfall in her routine is that even when we have a late night out and she ends up staying up late like midnight (normally she's asleep between 8:30-9 if she naps and by 8PM if she doesn't nap), she STILL wakes up at 630AM demanding breakfast out of habit! She doesn't always eat that much though but she does eat 3 regular meals and 2 small snacks and I let her decide on the amount. If your son manages to put a cheerio or small piece of fruit in his mouth on his own, praise him and then maybe let him play for a little bit and then you feed him (but don't forcibly feed) him the remainder of the usual "meal" about half an hour later. Slowly make the transition from semi-solid to regular family food and encourage much self feeding as possible. Anyway, good luck to transitioning your kid to finger food!

    I used to give porridges (oatmeal, rice or other varieties) as at that age they can eat with a spoon themselves. Put in pieces of fruit or served separately. Sometimes a plate of finger food (fruit, cheese, bread pieces) and a youghurt. If the child is not eating he/she will eat more the next time.

    Hi,
    i assume child is comfortable with idli, so can you try introducing oats idli, rava idli also.

    introduce rotis later, after2/3 months. I hope taste, interest change soon or later.
