Actually, toddlers or preschoolers have a tendency to swallow or drink rather than chewing the solid food. Hence, they try to avoid chewing solid foods. This happens because their food habits are slowly changing from liquid or semisolid to solid items. Smoothies are the best option to feed fruits to your child.
