my 2 yr old is refusing his food. even when i make what he's asked for as soon as its on the table he says he doesn't want it. he knocks it on the floor, gets up and walks away or just sits there messing around. if i try to feed him he'll sometimes have a small amount or he'll just spit it out. i've tried leaving him on his own to eat, eating with him, ignoring him till he's tried some, putting him on time out. if he doesn't eat it then he doesn't get dessert or snacks and has to wait till next meal when we have the same battle all over again. the health visitor has said not to worry about it but she also made comments on how he no longer following the curve he was on for his weight gain chart but falling below it. what do i do?
