How can I get my two year old to eat. He will be 3 in march but he just wont eat. In the mornings i make breakfast and his little brother eats like theres no tomorrow but he just refuses. All he wants is his cup of milk and his blanket. then lunch rolls around and again he wants lemonade this time and his blanket and then dinner same thing. I know he will eat when he is super hungry but this has been going on for a little while now and ive taken him to the doctors and they just tell me to give him vitamins and shakes that have nutrients in them that he isnt getting and eventually he will grow out of it. Id like him to eat sooner than later any suggestions on how i can get him to eat something.. anything!!Answer Question

A child eats when he is hungry:) HE drinks when he is thirsty. He will find out what he wants and start to eat by himself. You can tell him like my mum told to me: you have to eat 10 spoons from this or that. No, you can't have anything else. And you can't have your dolly or anything before you finish the 10 spoons. Just make sure he gets all the vitamins and nutrition he needs. And let him to decide how much food does he want. If he will be hungry he will ask for food. Anyway if he moves enough during the day he will ask for more food:) If you offer food more times a day and he needs to eat less. Like you give him food in every 2-3 hours. So he will eat something. Maybe his tummy not that big so he doesn't feel hungry after some food.
