I could use some help! My son just turned 2 and has become extremely picky about food
Over the last 6 months my son has stubbornly refused anything new. He used to be a great eater and now he cries and screams if I even offer him something he doesn’t recognize. At breakfast and lunch i make things I known he likes but at dinner he gets what the rest of us are eating. At least 6 nights a week he doesn’t eat dinner at all and he’s under weight. The doctor said he needs a multi vitamin but he refuses to try it, even though they’re gummies and taste like candy. We were told to switch him to a fluoride toothpaste and now he fights brushing his teeth. He wouldn’t even try a cupcake on his birthday! I make smoothies to pack in nutrients and it has helped him gain some weight but I just don’t feel like I’m handling the situation well. It’s not just food, he is not open to new experiences and he gets very upset about any changes in routine. I find it frustrating. How can I help broaden his horizons and encourage him to be more open minded?
