My son seems like he's extremely picky when it comes to food. Only it's not a particular type of food it's all table food. I've tried everything i can think of to get him to eat it, even blending it. It doesn't work.

all my kids went through the same thing. its a crazy phase that kids go through. im going through it right now with my two yr. old. and it drives me crazy. she wont eat really anything, especially at dinner. dont force him to eat, just try fruit at least he will get something healthy and just give him some time, he will grow out of it. I call it the picky phase honey and they all go through and be patient, work with him. He will be alright. Good Luck

Hi there...if he's teething then food is not something that he will eat....Keep putting variety of foods in front of him and if he's hungry he will eat....These are phases and they will pass...If he is losing weight or appears unwell see the paediatrist....

How old is he? IF he's old enough for table foods, just keep putting it in front of him. He'll eventually get hungry and eat. A lot of times if teething, eating upsets the stomach. Maybe choose foods that are gentler on the digestive system.
