My son turned 1 on the 13th and for the past 2 months or so, we've had problems with him eating. He's super picky and even when I tried baby food, the only food he would eat was sweet potatoes. Of course he'll eat the Gerber Stars and the Animal Crackers, but every other food is a complete fight. He refuses to taste anything and I have to trick him into tasting something for him to realize that it's actually good. I've tried leaving food out for him to try on his own terms, but he'd rather throw it around and play with it instead of eat it. When he gets hungry, he just wants milk. Any suggestions? Most children his age seem to eat anything! I've tried to make food seem really tasty by smiling and saying "SO YUMMY!" and making food seem enjoyable, but he doesn't buy it! Help!
