Only liquid food will not do. 18 month old child needs much more. Ensure if she is having normal weight for her age. If she is below 4 times her birthweight or below 11 kgs. then she needs more food to meet her demand. The diet should contain solid to semisolid inclusions along with liquids. Make soups of spinach having fiber value to help her in having smooth motions.
