My little boy is 2 on May 17 and he is such a fussy eater. Ever since he was 7 months old i have had problems with him eating he will eat a very limited diet and will only eat a few mouthfuls at most meals unless its baked beans, tin spaghetti or pizza. These are the only savory foods he likes and its getting really hard to get him to eat anything else. He will not even try foods even if we are eating with him he's still reluctant to try. He will just put it on our plates and tell us to eat it!
Usually i will get him to eat some of his main food (sometimes only 2 or 3 mouthfuls) and he will say enough or finished then i usually give him a piece of fruit so that i know hes had somehting but im thinking hes not eating his dinner as he knows hes getting fruit after and then his milk before bed.
Tonight i decided that if he wouldnt eat his main that was all he was going to get so i removed him from the table. Now i feel like a bad mother for not feeding him right but it is imposssible!
Does anyone else get this/ had this from their child? I keep thinking one day he'll change but its so hard when all you want to do is whats best for them!
