Sounds like your son is in controll in your house. Kids do NOT starve themselves. If he gets hungry enough he will eat what you give him. Parents give in to easily today. Your either the adult in charge or the Mommy who gives in. Talk to your Dr about how to get him to eat what YOU want. Not what he wants.

I agree with the above post.... how old is your son? You may want to include him in some fun time food prep in the kitchen ifhe is old enough. Also, does he eat fruit? Start there... fruit is great for jump starting an appetite. Give well balance fresh fruit, even add a bit of home made whip cream. I personally stay away from redi whip and cool whip, to much chemicals. Any way - start there and then slowly add different things - and just don't buy processed foods - many times it is a texture thing for kids - don't be afraid to start with fresh fruits - very nutritious, all the right nutrients.
