I know this is debating mums, but the collective intelligence of this board makes me ask this question here so that I don't get ridiculous responses.
My son, nearly 2, used to be an incredible eater. He loved EVERYTHING and anything and would often finish his meal before I did. Now I can barely get him to eat anything of sustenance. He'll eat grapes, strawberries and watermelon like it's going out of style and the same for goldfish crackers and cheerios, but when it comes to actual mealtimes, he eats MAYBE a bite if I'm lucky and then pushes his plate away. I know that he won't starve himself and that he'll eat when he's hungry, but I'm not quite as worried about HOW much he's eating more than the variety of foods he's eating. Any suggestions, personal stories or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
