My four year old son is beyond picky. It is easier to list the things he will eat then the things he won't. At this point we cannot even get him to try anything new.
He will say something smells delicious but when he looks at it he balks. I try giving him things I know are tasty and everything turns into a thirty minute meltdown before he will even lick it. Then when he will try it he puts it in his mouth and spits it out.
Im afraid now that everything he tries now is going to taste so different from the few things he will eat that he won't ever eat anything new.
At what point do I seek help on getting him to eat? He is not overweight but is a big kid in general (100th percentile on height and about 85th on weight). He eats about 15 things total.
