See doctor: Your 2 years old son with 3-4 words speech is normal for his age ,he will improve in his babbling . Some children take time to get used to solid or textures .You should not force him for tough textures . Speech does not get affected as long as he eats all foods .Talk to your doctor and get him checked for his development and speech , also hearing test .
