what is the extent of "Won't eat?" If your child is eating nothing at all. get to a doctor NOW! BUT< sometimes kids change their eating habits after a change in their life.
we moved out of state when my son was 3 1/2 and he almost stopped eating everything. He had been a very good eater, eating a large variety and trying new things. after we moved my husband was in a car accident, was injured and at home recovering for a couple of months. He could not play with our son. these two things may have played a role in his change of eating habits. I encouraged my son to eat and also introduced the Pediasure shakes in order to get some protein in him. It worked and slowly more items were added to his diet. be patient, don't give up. If you freak out your child will sense it and things can become worse. If you are concerned about your child's nutritional intake, PLEASE go to the doctor.
