Lately my DS (he's one) won't eat anything I make him. He LOVES fruit, peas and carrots, sandwiches (PB&J and fluffanutter-I only use 1 slice of bread and fold it in half, and grilled cheese), mac n cheese, oatmeal and applesauce, yogurt. He's willing to try new foods sometimes.
Lately, when I make dinner, he's very resisting. He won't eat anything that I make him. I sometimes make a back-up like steamed veggies and blended in baby bullet, but he won't eat that either. He wants to try and feed himself, but he ends up dumping food in his high chair and/or the floor. I try to teach him to feed himself, but he won't eat the food. I try feeding him the food himself, but he turns his head away and flaps his arms and squeals.
He IS teething. I've tried feeding him his favorite foods like oatmeal and applesauce, pears, etc. But he won't eat it either and sometimes I let him try to feed himself, but he dumps it in chair or floor.
I dont' want to feed him fruits or sugar all his life. For protein, I make chicken, turkey (ground), and pork (my DH has a beef intolerance). I will grind up the meat in a blender or cut the meat into bite size pieces so he can eat it himself. But again, throws it on the ground or in his chair.
How can I get him to eat? For some strange reason my MIL and mom can get
him to eat, but he won't eat when I try to feed him nor when DH tries
to feed him. I'm worried that he's not getting enough to eat at dinner. Plus, I have realized not to give him any snacks before dinner otherwise his appetite gets spoiled.
