Damn near fuck all...



A couple bites of yogurt for breakfast
Almost half a pancake for lunch
2 bites of a cucumber and a small handful of grapes for a snack
1 Ritz cracker (I'm not even confident he didn't feed it to the dog)
A couple bites of kraft dinner for supper



*le sigh*

How old is he?



My DD is 4.5, and has done this to me the last few days. I battled with her at first.. but today I said fuck it. If she's actually hungry, she will eat.
Has me stressed out though. :oops:

He's 14 months. I tried to sneak veggies in with his supper, by hiding it under his KD, but he chewed for a long time, then spit out all the veggies and swallowed the noodles...then I tried to give him just noodles, and he lost all trust in me, and refused to open his mouth :( He turned down almost everything I offered him today...people must think I starve him

Sounds like my daughter. Today she didn't touch her breakfast, ate half her pinwheel and the middle of her string cheese at lunch, a few blueberries and a few goldfish for snack and a bite of a hamburger at dinner. Yesterday she had a bowl of oatmeal and two bites if spaghetti.

At what point would you get concerned? DS hasn't ever been a huge fan of eating real food since we introduced solids to him at 6-7 months. He has days where he will eat more, but nothing compared to what I think he *should* be eating. I mean, I'm pretty sure he's gaining weight, but I'm worried about vitamins and nutrients he's missing out on.

I hate it, but I know she won't starve herself. She can communicate when she hungry, which is rare. She's tiny, but her growth has stayed consistent for her, her pedis never been concerned. I do give her vitamins which she loves because they're like fruit snacks. You could always try pediasure too. She's 2.5 and just hit 26 lbs.

I thought you weren't supposed to give vitamins or pediasure until age 2 though...

And I'm pretty sure DS would starve himself. He never gives me any indication he wants to eat. He would be perfectly happy living off of breast milk for the rest of his life...




ETA: Ok, maybe not entirely...if I'm eating something, he MUST have a bite...especially if it's something he shouldn't have -- like a chocolate bar.

My son just started being like this...he will eat hardly anything now. He still nurses 8+ times a day so I know he isn't starving himself but I offer so much food to him and he just refuses pretty much everything. He used to love food! He now only eats pizza goldfish, cheese, breastmilk, yogurt, blueberries, and noodles. What he does eat is very little too.
He is 16 months old.

I seear my kid is living off peanut butter and sunshine some days, hes 2. He wont eat meat (except chicken nuggets and fish sticks) which is our big issue so I give him a multivitamin because i'm scared he'll become iron deficient.



In times of desperation I make him smoothies with cooked broccoli, spinach,carrots, beans, banana and frozen mixed berries with a dash of honey and milk the fruit covers up the vegetable taste and he thinks he's getting a treat lol :twisted:



I just keep putting food in front of him and hope one day he'll grow out of this and start eating properly.

Haha...I do the same thing with DS (making smoothies) They taste horrid, because I don't put a lot of fruit in them (he's usually really good with eating fruit) so it's mainly veggies and whole milk, or chocolate soy milk if I really want to be nice.



I just offered him last night's burger and he was taking a bunch of big bites...I got all excited, then he spit out all of the meat :( So frustrating...lol
