My 27 month old son, will only eat cheerios or crackers. Everything else is a battle with temper tantrum and spitting.
Ellyn Satter. See her book "how to get your kid to eat (but not too much".
If healthy, with no . Developmental delays or autism, he'll eat what he needs over time. Give 2 tbsp. Of each food/ meal. Let him spoon-feed himself. Limit milk to 16-21 oz./day ; juice to 0-4 oz/day from an open-mouth cup during meals ; snacks, not off-;-on from a sippee cup. Turn his highchair away from the table when he tantrums.Without talking. Turn back when quiet. After ~ 25 min., take food away.
Picky eater tantrums. This is not unusual having a toddler who is a picky eater. Several strategies to try- foods before liquids, offering small portions of new foods over and over. Finger foods cut in lengths also help. Remember his portion size is just two tablespoons per serving.
