My little one is 11 months old... She has good apatite.... She wants to eat but it has to be her choice.... I am confused that what should I give to her for breakfast... Now she eats biscuit(cheese one) & sometimes fruits purée which I have to give her forcefully..... But I don't want to force her :( n she doesn't like cereal at all.. So what can I do now???? Plssss help...

I would keep trying different things until you find something (hopefully more than one) that she likes. My doc recommended trying something at least 5-6 times before you stop trying it. Sometimes it takes a long time for babies to decide about a certain food. Definitely don't force her; if she won't eat it today, put it away and try again in a day or two. My son is the same age and he loves pancakes, waffles, and yogurt. You could also try grits or cream of wheat (you can mix fruit in both of these to thin them out and give them a more familiar taste), cottage cheese (with or without fruit), scrambled eggs with cheese and/or small pieces of meat, small pieces of bagel with cream cheese, small pieces of buttered toast, french toast. That's all I can think of right now but try some and see what she likes, if anything.
