My son is about to turn 2yrs old and ever since he started eating solid foods has been the pickiest of eaters. There's no one food that he likes, he'll eat something one day then refuse to eat it the next. So much food gets wasted in our house because I make him something I think he'll eat but he won't. It really drives me nuts because he'll even ask for something specifically, he'll drag me to the kitchen saying "hot dog" so I'll make him a hot dog then he won't eat it. Some days he barely eats anything at all and I'm really worried that he's not getting enough nutrition. I try to compromise with him too "take a few bites of your hot dog and you can have a bite of cookie" but this doesn't work either. He's only 2 and doesn't seem to understand that yet, all he knows is he wants the cookie. Please, any sort of advice on this would be appreciated, thanks.Answer Question

I agree with Jademom07. I didn't have that problem. Because my girls either eat or went hungry tell the next meal. It will not hurt him to miss one meal. And do not bribe him with sweets.

With my girls 2 and 4 if they don't eat the food I prepare then they don't eat. They of course at the next meal eat a lot. I leave it at that. I am not going to argue over food, and my kids will not starve themselves. soccerchick has a great idea, it might work really well.
