My 3 year old son Haiden will eat, green peppers, mac n cheese, pizza, olives, rice, chicken, hamburger/ cheeseburger, cheese, dairy products, TV dinners, cereal/ cereal bars, Bananas, Apples, carrots, Oranges, Peaches, Pears.
My question is even though he eats these things and more he doesn't eat much. Like he will take a bite or couple bites and say i am full. Then like an hr later he will ask for a snack (which i warm up his supper or whatever it is that he didn't finish and say here is your snack.) But he is on PEdiasure his dr recommended that until 5 since he is so small. (22lbs, 35inces) I make supper around 4pm and we eat around 4:30-5pm and he takes at least a half hr to even get something in him, and by 6pm he is asking for his PEDIASURE which he doesn't get until 7. I do warm up his supper but he won't touch it so he has a fit.
I have done sticker charts where if he eat like a good boy he can put a sticker on it, if not eating nicely the sticker gets removed, I have put him in his room and say when ur ready to come and eat u may come down, I have made him sit at the table by himself and eat, I have taken toys away until he eats, done about everything to get him to eat.
He could go days with out eating if u let him, as long as he has liquid in his hand or something to drink he is fine. He prefers to have liquid, i even made him liquid breakfasts, lunches, and suppers, but he didnt' like that too much.
I am afraid if he was not on his drink that his dr recommend for him he might be Anemic
Any suggestions on what else i can try to get him to eat
