I have an 18 month old son who has slowly stopped eating foods he once loved. He will eat pretty much any baby food I put in front of him (Stage 3 with small chunks). I have noticed he eats less and less "real" food. He will feed himself bananas, oatmeal, french fries,crackers, cereal bars, ect. He used to love chicken, macaroni and cheese, green beans, ect... Now it seems like every meal is a struggle. His Pediatrician tells me not to worry about it, but I can't stand the thought of my baby going hungry :( The Pediatrician also suggested going cold turkey from baby food, but my son refuses to eat almost all day. I have tried showing him its good by eating it, making him try a taste, setting it in front of him and walking away, and prasing like crazy if he ever tries anything! Please help I'm sick of fighting him and wasting food!
