  • oh and I wouldn't let him eat only apple sauce all the time because it could make him consitpated and then he wont feel well and then he really wont eat anything lol

  • Offer him healthy meals. If he doesn't eat, then he waits until the next meal/snack. He will get hungry and eat.

  • Call your Pediatrician and talk to them. He needs vitamins. Is he taking a vitamin supplement because he should. They may recommend ensure or have you tried Ovaltine in milk? I would bring him to the grocery store (avoid the candy isle) and let him choose some things he might like to try. Give him a variety to choose from GL!

  • He is a toddler.. that's whats wrong with him. Lol. He's probably just fine. Toddlers go through stuff like that all the time. Just keep offering foods and if you are concerned just call his doc. :)

  • sounds like he is going through a phase. My son has days where he will eat everything in sight and then days its a literal fight to get him to eat anything. He will eat when he is hungry. What i do is make his plate if he refuses to eat i tell him this is what you will eat when you tell me your hungry. I always make him something I know he likes so its not that he doesn't like it just being a normal toddler. Its frustrating but its a phase that will soon pass.
