He is in a stubborn stage where all he will eat is a little bit of he peaches, pears, bananas, carrots, green beans and peas. He will drink his milk too, but that is about all he will eat. I usually try to give him a pasta along with the fruits and veggies. I make his meals a small portion of each. He doesnt like pbjs or grilled cheese, doesnt like chicken or hamburger lol....he is picky! He eats pizza but only picks the cheese and sauce off and leaves the breaded part. I need him to get some grain.Answer Question
From the looks of the list he will eat, protein is definitely missing. Does he eat egg? Yogurt? Have you tried hummus? What about beans? As for grains, try rice cakes, rye crisp (soak in milk), whole grain tortilla (try making cheese quesadillas or put hummus on them).
Remember, the experts say it takes an average of 8-10 tries to get a child to try something new. Just offer the new on a plate the same time as his old favorites. Don't make a big deal of him not eating it, or it'll become a battle of wills. I always eat the food I'm trying to get my son to like in front of him.
