Hi everyone! I have a two year old son who is refusing to eat anything anymore! This has become quite frustrating because he use to be such a good eater! He has Down syndrome so we are careful with what we offer since he hasn't quite mastered the proper way to chew yet but he does LOVE his snacks! Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Melissa

I don't have experience with down syndrome but my little girl is a veryyyy fussy eater. I make all her foods that she can eat with her fingers. She loves penne with meat sauce,I just stir enough sauce in pasta just to coat it. Maybe you could try using fettuccine and cut it up into small pieces, ten it would be easy to swallow. Do you guys eat the same thing at meal time? She loves eating snacks to, its a very difficult task lol Finger sandwiches with some spread also is pleasing to their little eyes. Try to make the meals look like snacking finger foods, hopefully it will change his mind :) good luck

Thanks Natalie, making them look like snacks is a great idea, I never thought of that! I make him try everything we eat and then have other options on hand just in case! I was a toddler day care teacher up until I had him and then I started to work from home so I know that he's at the prime age of just being a picky eater but it gets so hard sometimes! Thanks for your feedback!
