My son is 11 years old and is such a picky eater. And he also worries about how much he eats. He only weighs 61 pounds. This has caused him to have stomach problems and miss school. I have never known anyone who doesn't like to eat. In my family that is unheard of. Can anyone offer me any suggestions? Next Monday he has a doctor's appointment and I am hoping to get some answers. But this is an issue that we have lived with for many years now. It is starting to wear me down.Answer Question

I'm 46 and I'm a picky eater with a very small appetite and have been that way all my life. Some people are just like that and there is nothing you can do.
It is not something you can "nip in the bud". When I started my first dd on solids, I was determined that she would not be a picky eater like me. I made all my own baby food and exposed her to a wide variety of foods especially veggies and I am happy to say that she has a good appetite and has a well balanced diet (she is 17). I repeated the same exercise with my youngest dd and it was an epic fail. She refused everything I gave her and would only eat store bought baby food and now she is 13 (tomorrow) and just like me.
