My daughter almost only eats pb&j all the time. I always ask her to try other things but if she doesnt like them then we go back to the pb&j. All kids go through this, just make sure they are getting a vitaimin supplement so they are getting everything they need.

Thank you, so should i give him vitamins and if so which vitamins should i give him? I just hope he stops being a picky eater and start eating everything i give him. My family is always complaining telling that i should force him but when i do he starts gagging so i've gave up and when ever he gets hungry i give him what he wants.

Hi, it is so normal. I asked a doctor, a nurse,qualified maternity health nurse not to mentions friends family... My daughter who is now 10 years old went through a stage for over 3 months I could not get her eat anything but canned spaghetti ( she was 18 months) then about 2 half she decided she would not eat a single vegetable or fruit, and i mean not one. If i tried to force her she wold make her self throw it up, In the end i learnt to just make sure they were always on her plate but just not get worked up about it and let her eat what she choose. At 3 all she wanted was a sandwich everything had to be in a sandwich. eventually she stopped and just started eating what the rest of us eat, she now is a good eater even though there is nothing of her. My now 3 year old wont eat it unless we convince her the fairies made it, or Dora the explorer eats it, she is now very hard to get her to eat anything that is good for her. Again, we just have it on offer, i do make sure she gets something to eat ( I don't give in to her very demanding ways for ice cream, which is what she want to live on) I allow her a treat if she eats what I dish up which is not very often, but I know they wont really starve them self they do come around, If its not complete junk food they want let them have it, they will get sick of it eventually. I think most parents go through this, just be constant. good luck

Actually it is really normal. My son is 3 and will only eat what he wants and nothing else. Some days it is not in his nutritional value. I use vitamins to offset his deficiencies. I have the gummy bear vitamins. My son loves them
