please advise

my 13month old baby has problems with eating but the doc says she is healthy as she weighs 10kg, active and rarely gets sick. the major problem im having is she' s currently on nido1 and ever since i introduces her to cow milk, she doesnt like her formula at all. i would usually stick to her formula and only give her cow milk in the morning when she wakes and after a light meal. now she wont drink her formula, at most she drinks 200ml of nido and cow milk she drinks whenever you offer her, doesnt refuse it. now i dont know what to do, she doesnt like solid food either and thus cannot do with cow milk alone. what should i do, am desperate.

she wont eat fruits either, have to mash her banana and mix with purity meals, and the only vegetables she eats are the purity bottles, is this good enough for her. have recently been introduced to nutrishakes by GNLD which are from natural sources and are mainly encouraged for kids who dont eat, have you ever heard of them and can i give her.

very desperate.

Your baby's weight is good.You can certainly continue to give her full cream cow's milk. There is no problem with her drinking milk.The other part of her problem is that she won't eat her solids. She seems to be one of many babies who don't like coarse solids, so you need to puree her food well. Offer her what she likes at first let her join the family at mealtimes now and put her food in front of her and let her feed herself if she is able to do this.Keep mealtimes peaceful and don't try to force her to eat.
I do not have any experience with GNLD nutrishakes.
