Nicky only has a various amount of Boost Kid Essentials drink, 1 yogurt and 3 baby foods a day. That is it besides water or pedialyte. He does not eat solids, looks at solids and gags. We go to OT for this but I have been told all normal with gtube fed kids.

Aiden eats whatever pretty much. He is picky but usually we can get him to try it.

Ds is still on high calorie formula, and will be for awhile. Dd, no restrictions.

Brady has no eating restrictions IF he was able to eat...with CF, they NEED to gain weight so he could honestly have whatever he wanted to eat, but he doesn't eat much solid food, if any...just applesauce, yogurt, & mashed bananas...otherwise he's fed through a g-tube.  He just has to have his enzymes anytime he eats something with fat in it.

He gets Pediasure with Fiber through his gtube!

Willy eats almost anything you give him just have to cut it into bite size pieces. Just have to make sure he doesn't get what he is allergic too.
