How do babies go from eating everything they see to becoming picky eaters? And why is it that they’ll eat stuff off the floor even if it’s a bug but not things you feed them

    How old is your LO? Usually kids become picky eaters as a way of showing their independence and ability to make choices. Just keep offering, but not forcing healthy options, and reduce the snack foods. They won't starve themselves.

    My 3 year old was a champion eater. Loved taking him out to eat. Now he’s super picky and will eat crap off the ground but not the good stuff he used to happily eat. His 2 year old brother is doing good still and I’m hoping it stays that way. Only thing he’s never liked, is bread

    She’s 13 months, she’s not so much of a bad eater but it can be a hassle sometimes she constantly puts things that aren’t food in her mouth but plays with actual food

    That's completely normal at that age. What is her feeding schedule? Are you giving her milk before meals?
