My son is not a picky eater but he dont eat anything...nothing is there that he likes..he will say oh i love pizza but after just 1 slice he is done...The only 2 things that he likes is milk and apples..But he is very weak...gets tired very quickly. sometimes i can even notice dark circles under his eyes..he is 49lb and 48". His doctor says he is good as his weight is good..but now he has started complaining about dizzines..he plays around a lot..what shall i do..

Ask your doctor to do a basic blood panel. Check his iron levels and consider the possibility that he has food sensitivities or allergies.

Hi Manpreet, I would talk to the doctor about his symptoms and if he doesn't investigate, go to see another doctor fr a second opinion. It sounds like there are other symptoms now so maybe he will listen to you. Your other option is to go to see another doctor anyway - depending on how you feel about your current one. Is your son having problems sleeping?
