i have a 6 year old that on many days feels sick when he wakes up, i try to feed him breakfast but then he says that's what makes him sick. i have asked his teacher and she says he does not act sick at school and that he eats all his lunch at 10:45am. any suggestion for a picky eater in the AM.

My 4 year old typically does not eat breakfast. He does not like cereal of any kind. He has a cup of juice and that's about it until lunch. We do eat an earlier lunch because of this, around 11. I would say if he is eating all his lunch at school and eating normal at home for snack & dinner don't worry too much.

My daughter was getting nauseous at school in the morning and I found out that it was the mid-morning milk. She's switched to orange juice and no problems now. She seems to only have a problem with whole milk at snack time and she's ok with 1% on cereal. Just a thought...it could be what you're serving or combination??? Sick when he wakes could be nasal drainage. Try some hot coco to start with.

my five year old does this too, not all the time but a few times a month....not sure why? Maybe later breakfast is good!
