Re: grandson not eating well

Welcome to the forum!

There are several ways to approach this problem, some which may work better for one child than another.

The best advice I received about this is to worry only about what I serve and not what the child eats. Don't turn the picky-eater challenge into a power struggle. So mom should serve a variety of healthy food throughout the day. The if he only eats hotdogs or chicken nuggets for dinner, she can know that he's gotten good food at other meals. And of course, adults should set a good example and eat a variety of healthy foods, too, including a spoon of spinach!

He will grow out of this. My picky eater is now 10 and she asked for some of my fish last night at dinner.
