My 3 year old refuses to eat. Whenever we try to feed him he takes a few small bites and says hes done. His eyes lately are black and blue and hes super skinny. The Dr. says there isnt anything wrong, but i think when you can see your kids ribs and almost the bumps of his backbone there is. We keep trying to get him to eat but he just flat out refuses. We tried all his favorite foods and everything. idk what to do. anyone else been threw this?

Will he drink? You might need to get creative with meals and offer things like fruit smoothies and add in things like spinach and protein powder and such. And also things like pedisure... it's not ideal that he drink his meals but for now it might be the only way.
Also try to get him involved in cooking and making his own meals... sometimes helping makes the meal more fun.
Offer small frequent snacks.... things like fruit, veges, cheese, yogurt
I would also see if you can get an appointment with a pediatric nutritionist... maybe they would have some ideas.
