Parents I need help. My 2.5 year old son used to be a greater eater. Now all I can get down him is processed foods like crackers, fruit bars, chicken nuggets. He will no longer eat any of his favorite foods like tofu and noodles. I tried to get some pediasure down him and he spit it out. What are some nutritious foods I can get him to eat? I’m worried he is not getting enough nutrients.

Deborah posted January 11Stop giving the child process foods. Believe it or not when the child is hungry they will eat. Offer fresh fruits and vegetables daily the child in will eat whatever you eating. 0 Likes

Victoria posted January 19This is really difficult. I can understand your frustration, I feel like getting kids to eat a wholesome meal is the most gratifying part of being a mother (and grandmother). I would suggest you don’t buy the processed foods and only make healthy foods available. Also, don’t panic or rush. It takes time to change habits so patience is key. Give your child delicious healthy options and allow them time to learn to love the foods you give them. 0 Likes
