One topic that you may want to discuss, that I am going through right now with my oldest, is she doesn't eat anything!!!!! Is that not the most frustrating thing in the world? A whole plate of food and nothing and theres nothing you can do to force it, at least as far as I have tried. It's either, mac-n-cheese, chicken nuggets, or ravioli's, thats it! Anyway, look forward to listening to you guys!
Hey Barry, I totally get what you're going through. We thought out 5 yr old was just picky when he was 2, but he never grew out of eating his 3 things (pb&j, nuggets, grilled cheese). We've had many fights at the dinner table with him and the rest of our family because of his eating. It has been extremely frustrating and tiresome.
We started Food Therapy with him about 4 months ago and it has been awesome. Our pediatrician finally recommended we see a specialist after 2 years of no weight gain and being at 0% on the chart. You might want to see if you child qualifies for some therapy. If not, I'd be more than willing to send you some info of what we've done with him to get him to eat new foods and more quantity. Some of the exercises and steps are pretty easy and we've been really happy with the results. (He's currently eating scrambled eggs for breakfast which would have been unthinkable 4 months ago).
