  • I had a hard time getting them to eat some things. Attempting to get them to eat a variety of things would be a better answer. I usually would tell them that they had to eat this before they could have that. That being something they really wanted. But I never made the portion of this to be extremely big. If I could get them to eat a little bit of something in a healthy variety, I figured I was doing good.

  • Yes, usually he's quite picky. Certain textures seem to bother him, and sometimes it takes him a while to warm up to a new food. Sometimes he hardly eats at all, and he's really picky about what he eats. But then he surprises me (like yesterday) by not only eating all of his lunch but going around the table checking out what everyone else had and asking for bites. LOL

  • when she was a toddler she ate so well and ate everything. Now as a preschooler. She is picky and hardly eats at all.

  • No my two yr old. loves to eat. He may not want to eat when we eat, but we make him sit there with us.

  • My 2 year old REFUSES to eat most of the time. I can't get him to eat whole tiny meals and I'm trying to stop him from snacking all day but I worry hes not eating enough. When he was a baby he all the time. I have no idea what happened.

  • my little one used to eat everything but since he turned 2, he's been very picky. I've tried making snack and meal times fun like making a sandwich in the shape of mickey mouse or using shapes and color games and even songs ....he loved the interaction and would willingly eat things.
