My son turned in January, he doesnt swallow all his food. I cut the meat into small pieces,he chews on it and spits it out.Its not that he doesnt like the taste,i just dont know why he cant swallow it.Does anybody have the same problem or can give me advice?Its not just with meat,its also with apple,carrots,pizza and some other foods..Thanks for any advice.

Hi! Try warming the apples a bit, or softening the carrots some. Eventually, he should get the hang of it. Maybe just a dab of honey? Some children are finicky when it comes to meat. It can take a while. You can supplement with beans, peanut butter, and other yummy snacks to make sure he gets the protein. Also, talk to your pediatrician about vitamins. Just keep offering it to him. Best of luck! Hope it helps.
