1 year old boy does not eat well as past

Dears, my son was a super good eater, but since one week my son does not eat well as he did in the past any more.

He does not accept us to give him food and would take the food out of mouth with fingers even if we use spoon to send food inside his mouth.

He seems want to eat by himself but can not use spoon, he played with the food, throw them onto the floor but bearly put the food into his mouth. Porridges is too fluid as he can not use spoon. Bread, vegetables, meat, pasta would be thrown away.

He lost weight in last month and we are suggested by dietist to give him more solid food to eat, but now he does not eat well, what should I do to let him eat well again?

Hi,
Our daughter had the same issue. We thought her how to eat with the spoon, you can find videos for that. We sat her with us and guide her hand holding on the spoon to the mouth. She is now 16 months and eats by herself. I also gave her a small fork and she eats with it the bigger chunks as well. Hope that helps
