At what age do you stop pretending to your child that their weight isn’t an issue and that “they will grow into it”? I have a 10 year old step son who weighs 150lbs and is starting to become even more inactive then he previously was. His height is normal height for his age. I feel like his parents just keep pushing it off in hopes he will thin out but this has been going on since he was 6. ... More
Hi All! Post-holidays, I know that there is a lot of talk about eating nutritiously. I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for "stealthily healthy" and creative snacks? Ways to encourage kids to eat greens and other nutritious items? Previously, I've baked avocado and spinach/kale into brownies, and "hidden" greens in fruit smoothies. Then there's always the cl...

Hi first time mom here. And I’m having a hard time getting my 16 month old baby girl to eat anything all she wants is a milk bottle all the time. I’ve tried different foods different sipping cups fruit and she is determined not to eat or drink anything other than the milk. She will literally sit in the high chair for maybe 20 minutes at the most and still eat nothing. How can I get her to eat a... More
Any tips or experiences to share? I’m resigned to the fact that my 1 year old will not be eating as healthy as he usually would during the holidays, when he’ll be with grandparents who have been looking forward to feeding him every indulgent treat. We’re already seeing the folks as I type this, and despite all my precautions and requests, they’ve already fed him cheesecake and deep fried food... More
Hey everyone! I’m looking for some new ideas on what to pack my 2 year old for lunch for daycare. He is somewhat of a picky eater so I feel like I’m always packing the same things every week and I’m sure he’s probably sick of the usual chicken nuggets, pasta, rice, pizza rolls, etc. Also, I can’t pack anything with peanuts/peanut butter or egg as some of his classmates are allergic. If anyon... More
Hi everyone, I have a 2 year old picky eater. I know it’s not uncommon, but I am stumped on how and what to feed her. I feel like she rejects 90% of what I offer, and today I realized she started losing weight. I am looking for book recommendations on how to feed her, and what to feed her. It doesn’t have to be the same book. TIA! 💗
I have a two and a half year old and an almost four year old. They’ve been sharing a room for almost a year now. Recently they’re both suffering from sleep problems and eating issues. We can’t get them to eat much of anything. My husband and I are exhausted, so are they. They both walk are all day with dark circles under their eyes, neither one has half the energy they used to, and the emotion... More
Any one have any ideas to try and get your LO to eat their veggies? I’ve tried sneaking it in a bunch of ways but my baby girl can always tell. She’ll eat the rest of the bite and spit the veggie out or just avoid it completely. I know she needs to eat them. She knows she needs to eat them. How did you all get your kids to eat the greens?
And how do I stay positive and calm while trying to conceive?
My son is about to be a year old in a couple weeks and I’m freaking out about the transition from formula to cows milk. I’ve already tried introducing him to some dairy products like cheese,yogurt and other foods that might have dairy in it. He hasn’t had a problem until recently I gave him American cheese, he pooped 5 times in one day causing him a diaper rash. Is he possibly allergic to cows ... More
Hi Parents, I need your advise/suggestions please... my 21 month old daughter has been stuck at the same weight of 19 lbs since she was 12 months old, her pediatrician says she is ok... but for some reason I'm worried cause I don't think it is normal. She is a toddler so she is very active and she is also a very picky eater. Did any of your kiddos go through this... I'm thinking of ... More
My almost 21 month old kiddo takes more than an hour to eat, every single day. She sits for good 15-30 minutes and then walks around or reads and one of us have to feed her. It just delays the bath and bed time. Just wondering how long other kiddos take..... we do family style dinner everyday.

My son is so picky he’d rather starve and he really hasn’t gained much weight because of this! Anyone have any tips or tricks? Thanks.
My whole family moved to another country. All of a sudden, my 2.5 year old girl looked disgusted with her milk. I don't know any reason why she stopped. She has the same milk. She is allergic to cow's milk so she has almond milk since after 1 year old.
My 2 yo is an extremely picky eater and mealtimes are always hard but dinnertime was usually the easiest. Lately she has been refusing to eat any of the meal I prepare for dinner. I don't want to get in the habit of making a second meal just for her, i usually always make something i know she normally likes. Any tips on getting her to eat what i make? She is very stubborn and sometimes jus... More
