I have a 3 year old who won't eat anything besides cereal and chicken nuggets, all he wants is junk. When I say cereal I don't mean the baby cereal he ate as an infant, i mean sugary cereal like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cookie Crisp, Cocoa Pebbles, etc. He won't eat anything at all and won't try ANYTHING new, everything is yucky! He cries and screams for junk food constantly.And all he wants to drink is strawberry milk. I don't know what to do, I am at my wits end and so worried he may turn into a diabetic, it runs in both sides of my family. Doctors keep telling me this is normal and he will grow out of it, as long as he's healthy and not losing weight then he will be fine, well, I am not fine, I want my child to start to eat before he gets very sick. Does anyone have any tips for me or have any of you been through this and know anything I don't know?
