My son has always been a picky eater. Right from when I first introduced him to solids, he'd make faces and spit any new food, especially pureed fruit. Initially, I didn't take it too seriously and gave him whatever he seemed to like. However, as he grew older, his dislike for more or less all kinds of food I mean no matter how it was served: soft, cold, chunky, paste-like....whatever, he won't eat. He still is like that. For years we strived to feed him proper meals, coaxing him and tempting him but all he'd ever agree to have readily was milk. So for years it was milk, milk and more milk. We were afraid he'd starve himself so we obliged. We did try milkshakes, but of course milkshakes have fruit, or chunks or they don't taste like plain milk. So they were also rejected. The situation now is that apart from pizza (without any topping except cheese, all veggies or meat are removed by him) and nutella sandwiches, mcchicken nuggets, fries and of course the faithful cuppa milk he basically doesnt eat anything else. He is not a child willing to experiment with new flavors and textures. Help!
