My now almost 2-year old used to eat anything but for the past week or so, it seems like he became an extremely picky eater. All he wants is milk, junk foods, and some fruits (thank God). He eats a couple bites at every meal and that’s about it. Most of his food would end up splattering the high-chair and the floor. If I try to feed him, he would just say “NO” while pushing away my hand.
I know that picky eating is very common at this stage and according to his pediatrician, it’s developmentally normal. As growth slows down, children eat leass because they need less. However, as a parent, it’s hard not to get alarmed when your child suddenly slam on the brakes and refuse to eat his once favorite foods.
I have tried everything to get him to try other things and it hasnt worked. Anybody else has gone or going through this? Any creative deas on how to handle this stage?
