Is he otherwise healthy? How does he measure up to height and weight charts for his age? What kind of food are you trying to get him to eat?

In brief: Decrease his liquids

Toddlers who are growing normally and meeting developmental milestones and don't want to eat solids are usually being overfed liquids.
Limit milk to 16 oz juice to 6 oz and water to 12 oz. Offer foods that are nutritious an d that the child has eaten -not cookies and chips. It can take a week or 2 to change patterns.
