My daughter did not walk until 14 months. Are his weight and activity level normal? Instead of supplements, keep trying new foods with him. Steamed vegetables and soft fruits cut in tiny pieces, soft noodles and yogurt are all good fods to try. If you are worried, ask your doctor.

Every child develops at different stages if hes is just one. Dont worry to much, you health visitor should keep u right, do not give supliments unless your doctor has recommended it. It is normal for some children to take as long as 18 months to walk. It is also normal at this age to a child slow down in eating where they could be exploring the foods they like and dislike, or their growth is slow at this prensent time or perhaps still drinking alot of milk. Good luck
