I know this sounds bad. He's always been a picky eater. He was breastfed for 11 months. Then formula. And it was all downhill once he began eating table food. It started out with him only wanting a few things like grilled cheese and spaghetti. He would try veggies and some fruit. But recently he's boycotting lunch at preschool every single day and even sometimes breakfast at home. So I'm always giving in at dinner just to fill him up. For the past few weeks, he's refused almost every meal that wasn't pizza, pancakes, chicken nuggets (sometimes), and one flavor of pop tarts. Right now, he's a healthy weight and I've spoken to his pediatrician about it, who isn't concerned. He takes a multivitamin and he sometimes drinks an Ensure. I'm a solo parent (in my late twenties). I'm at a loss here, and I don't want an obese kid. Does anyone have any suggestions, or has anyone gone through this?
