My 2 year old wont eat dinner. I know he is hungry but he just wont atay at the table. He wont even sit at the table. He has been out of a high chair since just over a year and we have never used anything with restraints, we have never needed to before thing.
He is crying that he is hungry, but all he wants is a freezee, I will not give into that. I told him he can have one after he eats, he sat up to the table, but didn't touch his food, after about a minute he got down and started screaming again.
I have tried making his favorite foods, so I know it isn't that he doesn't like it. He just will not sit and will not eat. I have brought him back to the table countless times and he just runs again. I have made sure there were no distraction 10 min before dinner. He is even excited for dinner when the timers go off, but once at the table he just wont stay or eat.
I know he is hungry. How do I get him to eat his dinner

when dd was younger, i had to make a snack tray for her. i filled it with healthy, nutritious foods and snacks. i allowed her to eat whatever she wanted, all day long. i would still have her sit with us for meals, but didn't stress too much if she didn't eat. she is 26 months and now happily sits for meals with us. if i don't have her in a booster seat, though, she will get distracted and not eat as well. good for you for not giving in!!! too many times i see children get non-nutritious snacks just because the parent doesn't want to deal with the fussing.
