i have a 2yo that is not interested in eating at all. he does not chew but swallows, at the end of the day, he usually spits the food out. he has been like this since he was weaned from breastfeeding, i tried to give him pediasure so that he could gain some weight but he refuses to drink them.
i have tried to make meal time - fun, i av sat him to eat with me but still, he hates eating. anytime he is hungry, he cries but still turn away from his food. also, he cant feed himself because of all this and anytime i encourage him to self feed, he throws the food away. honestly, i dont know what to do cos i'm starting work next week and i'm scared the daycare might not be able to do the job for me. also, he is still babbling up till now, he call a few names, and i cant understand him at all. pls what can i do to make him eat, chew and talk.

I would talk to his doctor about this. My first son had some problems similar to this and it turned out that the muscles in his tongue where not developed right so he has to have special speech thorpe to help. It ended up helping his eating issues too.
