I understand that kids don't want to stop having fun to sit down and eat, but he will come up with any excuse in the book to get out of eating. He'll whine and cry and say his tummy hurts, he's not hungry, he doesn't like what i put in front of him.. etc. but a half hour later he'll ask for cookies or crackers. i don't get it! my neighbors little girl sits down and eats without a fight, and i wish it was like that for my son! What should I do?!Answer Question

Why does he need to sit down and eat? Don't make meal time a battle ground. Maybe he doesn't like his chair.
Don't keep cookies and crackers or other foods you don't want him to have in the house. Make an area for him in the fridge so he can get healthy food when he wants. I do this with my 22 mo grandson. Let him eat at a coffee table or a kids table standing up.
