My son will turn 3 in a couple weeks. He eats breakfast normally really good, has a snack, then lunch goes normally okay, sometimes will eat another snack, and then dinner is almost always horrible. It doesnt matter where we are at. If he does not want to eat there is no way to convince him, it can even be something that most other times he would totally love. It has gotten so bad lately that if you try to give him a bite he will start gagging to the point that he will throw up. I refuse to make different meals. I am not asking him to eat wild crazy outragoues foods. It is so frustrating because he will act like that, and say that he is done and then turn around and ask for a snack. I stand my ground and tell him no because if he couldnt even attempt to eat dinner then he doesnt need a snack and then he throws a huge fit kicking and crying saying that his tummy hurts. Which then causes me to feel like a horrible mother and a failure (but i still dont give in to him). I need help all i want to do is cry.
