Ok for the past couple of days, my son, who is 2 almost 3, only eats peanut butter on a spoon. I cannot get him to eat anything else. That's all he wants. I make sure to give him his vitamins. Is this really bad?

I honestly wouldn't worry about it too much. My 3.5 yr old has been like that for a long time. He eats very few things, no where near a balanced diet. I give him vitamins every day, too. He won't even chew a flintstone type vitamin, I have to buy liquid vitamins. He eats yogurt, baby food fruit (he calls it applesauce but won't eat actual applesauce), salad (lettuce with italian dressing... this one freaked me out when he started with it but dad was eating it and he actually tried it). He'll eat vanilla ice cream but no other flavor and he drinks milk and fruit juice. That's no where close to a balanced diet but with the vitamins I know he's getting what he needs, the dr said he's fine. I wouldn't worry! He'll be okay with the vitamins and he'll most likely grow out of it (that's what I keep telling myself, too.) LOL Kids!

well peanut butter is actully kind of good for them but i dont think all the time try something like putting peanut better on bread or a vegie for him and if that doesnt work i would try taking the peanut butter out of his sight and the home if he continues to just want eat that i think maybe you should ask a doctor or a food specialist
