We never tried to force the issue. After all... they won't starve. Sometime, when we have them over, we'll take a bunch of food that we've had in the cabinets for awhile and just cook up a regular old buffet and let them munch on whatever's there.

Smile Re: grandson not eating well

I saw something on television the other night that may help. The mom made a game out of getting her little girl to eat. For healthy choices in the girls lunch she would get 3 stars for example, 2 stars for less healthy and 0 stars for treats...and she actually put the stars on the items.....once the child earned a certain number of stars she was rewarded for something special she wanted...like a special toy or book or an outing. She had a chart and put the stars on each day. I thought it was a great idea, as I have a little one and have used a similar game for eliminating some behaviour issues and it worked wonders.

Re: grandson not eating well

Yes we also you smiley faces on good days and sad faces for not so good days. I do like the idea of the more stats for the healthier foods. I think we will try that.

Re: grandson not eating well

Have his parents expressed any concerns to his pediatrician?

When my DS was little and I had concerns about his diet I talked to his dr.

Re: grandson not eating well

I bet, it's the texture thing, like KayKay expressed....

Small kids have so much more delicate senses then we do....taste, touch and hearing...loud noises can hurt their ears....and the textures of different foods, sometimes they don't like....my grand daughter grew out of it quickly, but she even hated the textures of different things that she touched....
