So my DS just turned 3 on the 18th and for the last couple months he's been eating very little. His well child check up isn't until the middle of the next month because i guess they can't see him earlier than exactly a year since his last well child check up. therefore, we won't know if his weight gain and growth is still right on track for his age and height, as it was this time last year. he's always been a picky eater, so we'd always make him what it is HE wants to eat for dinner that night, whether or not we've already made dinner for ourselves. lately though, he won't even eat the foods he likes!
he won't eat chicken, hotdogs, yogurt, soup, etc. he WILL eat toast every day for breakfast and ask for toast for lunch and dinner. he'll eat lunch meats but take the bread off and either just eat the meat or just eat the bread, but not both together. we've gotten him to eat salad in the past, and eggs, and some veggies like carrots and beans. he loves corn on the cob.
i'm just curious if this is normal because usually when he goes through a growth spurt, its the complete opposite, he eats a lot. also, he's still breastfeeding but only at night before bed and right when he wakes up. and we don't let him snack until after he's had lunch, but he'd snack on crackers, gold fish etc all day if we'd let him. he sleeps ok, he plays ok, his moods are fine, etc.
