I always felt it was important to feed my boy his main meals at a similar time each day and while sitting in his high chair. He would have his cereal fed to him at 8am each morning and have his lunch fed to him after his midday nap - about 1pm.
At lunch i always fed him store bought baby food that is age appropriate - the jar stuff as i found it was a peace of mind to know exactly how much and what he was eatting. This has worked well until now!
He is now driving me crazy with refusing to eat these foods - especially his lunch meal. He'll have a few spoonfulls and then just start spitting it out and no trick that has worked before works anymore at all - he cannot be distracted, i think he's now old enough to know that he can control whether he eats or not.
I dont know what to do??? I really want him to eat his meals properly so that i know he's being well fed. Any ideas or stories about how your 17 month old is eating?
