Hi I have 4 kids, 2 of them toddlers and this is the first time i encounter this problem. MY 3 year old has not wanted to eat anything other than a few selected items (spaghetti only home made, chidken nuggets from mcdonalds only, the insides of a hot pocket or the toppings on a pizza cheese pepperoni and sausage, the meat off the taco bell tacos, or onino rings from burger king and ofcourse milk.. lots of MILK!) this has been going on for the past year now!!!! i give him what he wants just to make sure he eats something but he refuses to try anything else ( he used to eat everything when he was under 2). he will not even try a french fry, or a cheeseburger nevertheless a veggie!! I really dont know what to do, I work full time and thankfully my daycare provider is nice enough to give him the things he wants just to try and make him eat, and even the things we know he likes he will sometimes refuse too :( i am getting worried about him and worried about next year when he goes to preschool as I know no one else will give him things he will actually heats to accomodate him. Any advice, input, experience you may have with this is helpful I am desperate now. My daughter who is 2 now is started to try and copy my son and not eat different foods now too. HELP!
