My son won't eat
« on: Jul 15, 2013 @ 02:05 PM »
My son is 16 months and he won't eat. He doesn't eat anything unless it is sweet and full of sugar. All he wants is snacks. I've tried doing no snacks, no sweets but then he just doesn't eat. We give him water in a sippee cup. I just don't know how to get him to eat. Any suggestions?

Yikes, already! My son is like that but he didn't start until he was a little older. Or pediatricians usually suggested not to push him (to not cause anxiety about food) and to keep putting lots of variety in front of him. Unfortunately, that has not been helpful and he is still as picky as can be. He just snacks.

But, I have noticed when he has growth spurts he is more inclined to try something new. So we kind of really work with him then and then back off when he's not so hungry. He is 9 so it's not working quickly at all. I'd love to hear more advice on this as well.
