  • Why? Are you concerned that you little one is malnourished? I'm just thinking it seems a little obsessive to me. Just watching what groceries go into your cart on shopping day and making sure she/he is gaining weight and growing in skills at a level that's age-appropriate should be enough for most kids, don't you think?

  • Make healthy foods, serve them, and don't force him. Offer a variety of healthy things and let him pick and choose. He will not starve. One of our biggest regrets was battling over foods with our youngest. It is too stressful and makes everyone unhappy. GL

  • does he like breads, dairy products, turkey meats, peanut butter and jellys, mac and cheese, chips, applesauce, ect? he doesnt have to eat everything. my ds used to only eat meats, but now he's only eatting breads, dairy and stuff like that. force feeding him isnt going to hel much. i try to get ds to take a bite of everything, if he doesnt like it fine he doesnt have to eat it. force feeding will usually lead to children not wanting to eat whatever was force feed to them later on and have a negative assication with that food.
