My son just turned 13 months today, but for the past week he doesn't want to eat. Everytime I try to feed him he'll smack it out of my hand or spit it out when I do get it into his mouth. He's been learning to feed himself but now when I put food on his tray of his highchair he throws it on the floor. The one thing he won't throw on the floor or spit out is cheese cubes. I also can't get him to eat any vegetables besides potatoes. I've tried corn, green beans, carrots, celery, tomatoes, lettuce, even cans of mixed veggies and all he'll do is pick out the potatoes and eat them. He's on whole milk now so he doesn't get his nutrition from formula and I just want to make sure he's getting what he needs. Anyone have any suggestions as to what I can feed him or how to get him to eat more? He still drinks enough, he drinks some kind of Cranberry juice everyday and milk at nap time and bedtime.

It sounds like he used to eat well when he was given only healthy stuff (like the baby food) then, you started giving him sugary and salty things and only wants that stuff now. There is so much sugar in a toaster strudel....I would rather have that than an apple, too! You know!??! Try just getting healthy foods, then no matter what he picks, it will be good for him. Like the others have said, too. If he gets hungry enough, he will eat what you give him. Don't keep making new meals if he wont eat the first one.
