My son is 2 & a half years old & is nearly impossible to feed. The only foods he will really eat is yoghurt, bananas, biscuits, 2min noodles & his usual milk drinks. If i attempt to offer him anything else he literally gags when you try offering a mouthful, he screws his face up & runs the other way distressed like its poison or something. I have tried almost everything to make meal times fun & have tried disguising foods in his yoghurt but still refuses it everytime. He doesnt like to get anywhere near or touch food that he hasnt examined first & even then he will either push it away from him or pick it up with causion, but still wont eat it!! This has been going on for over 6months now & is getting progressively worse. Please, is there any mums out there dealing with the same kind of severe fussy eating & if so what are some of your tips & tricks??? Or does this sound like something deeper than fussy eating & needs professional help?? He's eating less 'n' less every day & its got me worried he'll just fade away to nothing. HELP ME!! WHAT WOULD YOU DO..??
