Your babies are only slightly below the average for their corrected age. There is no need for concern. Do not try and force them to eat. Give them foods that they seem to like and only introduce new foods when they are ready for this. Be very patient with them, they will start eating and you need to keep mealtimes peaceful and relaxed.
