My son is 12 months. He gets in moods like that, but one thing gets him to eat everytime. Offering something anything for him to dip his food in. Any condiment or just juice from the food while it cooked.

Other than that, I was like that too. My mom asked what made it yucky and found I didn't like my foods to touch. So she made sure they didn't or would use divided plates. My sister was picky too, but if you put tiny portions on her plate (3 green beans, 4 corn pieces, 2 bites of meat) then said if you eat all of that you can have 1 of {insert favorite snack}. Then she'd ask for more snack, mom would say okay but you have to eat some many bites of whatever dinner was. It worked well.

Hi my son was a late eater. He didn't start to eat solids until he was a year old and once he started it was like there was no limit as to what or how much he would eat, but recently he does the same thing as your son. The only thing he will eat is a hotdog and he WONT let me feed it to him. I've been looking at different recipe websites and parents magazine for ideas and tips.Im sorry I didn't have much advice but just know that you are not alone! If i come across any helpful hints or tips i will pass them your way! good luck!
