My son is 16 months old and is VERY picky! If i try to feed him something new, he refuses without even trying it! Today has been very frustrating, for breakfast I made him some oatmeal w/strawberry peices in it and he took a bite & liked it but then refused anymore. So i gave in and gave him what he normally eats & he ate it all. For lunch i gave him a graduate meal & he ate a bite and chewed & swalled and wouldnt take anymore, made him a ham & cheese sandwich and wouldnt even try it...I need advice on how to get him to eat more & a variety. He starts daycare nov 5 and im so afraid hes going to be hungry all day!!Answer Question

Try and find a home care situation for him that will be sensitve to his needs. You should be able to find a mom that is experienced with picky eaters. It's best if you can find someone that is only caring for her children and your child. Group care can be difficult for 16 mo. and trust your instincts that it is going to be hard for him.
