My son went through the same, but then picked up and now he eats everything. I wouldnt worry about it too much, although if he is rapidly loosing weight then take him to the Doctors :)

I agree if he is losing weight then I would speak to your doc. But if yo are concerned about his eating enough good stuff. Don't let him have any snacky foods and start him on a daily vitamin. It is really hard to be malnurished(sp) in this country.

My son went thorugh the same, it still happens every now and then.....he was a great eater as a baby was on solids early as milk was not enough is a tall boy with loads of energie, is isn't over weight but he eats like a horse for long enough and then from one day to the next stops and barely eats anything.....wierd i know but after about a week or 2 he starts eating again.....

@weight, if you son losses weight at great spead i would see the doctor but if it's just a little i would wait and see......

Good luck xxxx

My son is like that and he's 3. He's been that way since he was 1.5 yrs old. For a few days he'll eat like a pig and then for a few more days he'll eat barely anything. Sometimes that how toddlers are. It's called the toddler diet. Up until he was 1.5 yrs he was eating anything and everything lol.

But yeah if he snacks between meals try cutting out the snacks or only letting him have 1 small healthy snack right in the middle of meals.
Say breakfast is at 8am and lunch is at 12pm, let him have a small snack at about 10 am. Then Lunch is 12pm and dinner is at say 5pm, let him have a small snack at about 2:30pm. Then let him have a small bedtime snack about 30 minutes before he goes to bed. Get him some vitamins so he's still getting the vitamins and minerals he needs.

Do you have pediasure over there? My son likes the Pediasure Nutrapals drinks. You could try him on that. It's a good nutritional drink for kids 1 yr and older. Check out their website http://www.pediasure.com/. If you don't have it there maybe there is a nutritional suppliment over there for toddlers and children that you could get for him. But you can order Pediasure online.

Hope i helped!
