My son is extremely picky as am i about everything especially food, I took him to his pediatrition who recommended Pediasure... plus I give him V8 VFusion juice... and he is gaining weight as he should... with the both of those combined my son is getting everything he needds that he doesn't get from the few foods he will eat!

My son is very picky too and just last night i was cutting up a little meat for his plate(which Is the hardest thing to get him to eat) and I didn't really pay any attention to the fact that i was cutting them into shapes, which is something he is learning about and pretty familiar with. Well He yells out square....rectangle....and he's all excited, so I went right along with him and tried to encourage his interest. It worked like a charm...he ate all his meat and wanted more. Then when it came to the corn(which I usually dont have a problem getting him to eat; howver this time I had over cooked it and it was mushy!) I simply identified it a "Little yellow squares"...and gulp...down the hatch went the corn !!!!!!!!! Also I would suggest letters and numbers or using cookie cutters for shapes or u can just cut the food into smaller shapes yourself if u want. Around this age is when a lot of kids are learning letters of the alphabet, numbers, colors and shapes.....so try to make meals fun and interesting to them....whatever is most appealing to them. Good Luck....I really think I've hit the jackpot here this time.

frustrating my son gets like that sometimes it's best just to let them pick if they will. Just have stuff available rather than trying to get them to sit down and eat. That just doesn't work for my son. Or having your plate in reach of him he may pick off of it though most of it will probably end up on the floor.
