What do you do when your child refuses a meal? My son for the last week or so has been refusing to eat dinner. Even if it's his favorite he'll take a couple bites and be done. It's getting really old. He's 3.5

One day Heathen will eat everything in sight, the next she'll eat next to nothing.

Thanks ladies. That's what I figured but it's super annoying. Lol. He used to eat everything in sight and now he's barely a grazer.

Save it for them to eat later if they want it and leave it at that.
