I am divorced, but share 50/50 custody with my ex-husband. We have an 11 year old daughter, 9 year old son, and 3 year old daughter. Right before our separation, my husband got on a health kick and lost over 200lbs! Kudos! He never has been a breakfast kid, barely eats lunch at school, he eats very little of an afterschool snack, and most times, doesn't eat dinner, or very little of it if he does! I've asked him several times what's going on, and he says he's just not hungry. This coming from an "eating machine", I'm worried about his eating habits, but can't force him to eat either....
My ex-husband eats healthy, and didn't starve himself to lose the weight he's lost, but my oldest daughter tends to think that his obsession with "fatty" foods is what's keeping my son from eating because he constantly tells them that everything they want is too fattening! Kids want flavor, not health food! I'm not saying junk...but real food!
