I was just wondering what dinner time is like for everyone. Lately my 2.5 year old doesn't want to eat dinner. Every night while we are eating he just wants to run around/play and he won't eat.

My son has to sit at the table until we're done with dinner. He has to try at least one bite of his dinner. If he doesn't want to eat more, I just insist he drinks his milk and that's it. I've never had him ask for something to eat later.

my son is the same way. i am half tempted to put him back in the high chair when we eat so that he cant get down out of the chair. he will take like 1 or 2 bites then go play and then come back for more and do it again and again. i seen on that super nanny or whatever it is called that you need to limit there time to eat. like give them an hour or something like that and if they dont eat with in that time they dont get anything or something like that. not sure if i said that right but i am sure you can look it up through google or something like that. i have not tried this with my son only cause of the fact that when we are done with dinner i put everything away and that is it. if he did not eat then too bad. he then gets a bath and goes to bed after that. if he does ask for food later i try to limit it to like a cheese stick or something small and simple like that. he also has to have a cup of water in his room at night which i dont like cause he pees through now more than before but he screams till he gets one and he wont sleep.
