My son is 2 and a half and he has no interest in eating. He has always been a fussy eater and he is relatively small for his age. But lately, he has gotten worse with his eating habits. he only likes to nibble on snacks. He doesn't find anything appealing to eat if it is not junk (lollipops, chips, chocolate) . And he has been having tantrums in order for me to give up and he ends up skipping the meal. I have tried different foods, entertaining him to watch tv, play with toys while he's eating. Sometimes it works, and I'll be able to get a few bites in, and then he'll refuse to finish. I am getting so tired with this battle!!! I know he wont starve. But i want my child to eat normal, or at least be interested in eating, rather than refusing to eat before he even sees what I'll be feeding him. Help!!!
