My 3 yr old son is not so much of a picky eater as a play at the table eater. he will poke at his food, drop his fork...do everything but eat.... on the other hand, my 5yr old daughter sits for an hour picking at her food coming up with every excuse as to not eat...last night it was she was too cold to eat. She had a sweater on already... I have tried everything. Time outs, eating food that wasnt eaten at the next meal, taking away toys/privliges. I am at my wits end and starting to fear their health...im wondering if they are getting enough. I am at the point where if you dont eat then you go hungry, but i feel bad for doing that. Its also hard because we live with my in laws and my Mother in law gets very upset if my children dont eat her food or say something bad about her food or that they dont like it....she i think is being really immature about it and needs to get over it because they are 5 and 3 and speak their mind. But my Mother in laws temper tantrums are another story...How do you deal with eating issues?Answer Question

well I am a vetern at this issue and my advice is this; children will eat what they need. Before you blink a eye you will be sharing these issues with your children about there children. It all is in-material they eat what they need.
