Picky eater...

Ryan - posted on 03/02/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




Hi all! My son is 18 months old and has just now become a very picky eater. He used to eat anything/everything. Now all he wants are his fruits and snacks (goldfish etc). He will also eat his breakfast but he generally gets a banana and yogurt. We've tried the we eat it first, just putting some in his mouth, making it so he's feeding himself, but no good. He will get the utensil up to his mouth and laugh before flinging it off.
Any suggestions???!?!

I am worse off then you... but the only advice I can give about this ( because I am at my whits end in this subject)  LoL... The only advice I can give is in my son's therapy they try the " kiss it, lick it, batcave" method. :) Try something new... have your child kiss the bite, lick it bite and put the bite into the "batcave" ( mouth). It was a struggle but some days it really worked for me.  Also, keep the tv off and ensure the only thing that is happening is eating.

now the most important thing for your child is to grab your attention any way,he has discovered your sensitivity to this issue and is having fun with this thing,just forget about it ,give him a brake ,beleave me that mustn't be a thing for you to worry ,just ignore him for a week what ever he wants let him eat ,then he will give up and start to think just about his food,I hope that will help you.
