Anyone else's chidl do this??????!!!

My child is such a picky eater. In fact she needs to gain some weight. She won't eat her food unless she throws it on the ground and then eat it. Or she won't eat what I give her but will somehow find something dirty off the ground or corner and put it in her mouth. Ugh!!! Anyone else having this problem??????

  • Yes.. But she has PICA. Most all of her food goes on the ground before she eats it, and if she gets to a cup with out a lid she dumps it and sucks it off the ground. I give her small portions and stand/ sit by her at meals and snack to pick up wht gets on the floor and to discourage throwing it down there

  • when my son was little, I would give him a piece of food at a time because he was always throwing stuff. It worked. Now he is 2 and doing better....most days :)
