20 months old won''t eat

Hi doc, please help me my child doesn''t want to eat. He will eat a few spoons and would not want anything. Does not like other food besides yoghurt and rooiboos tea. I''m thinking of taking him to the peadetrician but he is fine plays, but am concerned about his health as he like this food. What food can i introduce to him any suggestions. Please help.

Please see my reply to Anon above.The same approach is needed for your son.Do not try to make him eat if he refuses.Hhe may prefer soft mashed food at first.Your son will eat what he needs.
