Conclusion




You may find yourself in a situation where your child absolutely refuses to eat – if it is too much of a hassle, let it be for some time and then try after a while. Don’t force-feed your child. Toddlers at this age can be tough, but this won’t last too long. Be patient and continue feeding your child as much as he can eat. To get the meal plan for your 22-month-old, click here!
