Can someone please help me? I am at my wits end trying to get my 1 1/2 year old son to eat. He will only eat fresh fruit, (natural) peanut butter and yogurt. Not that those are bad things but I think he needs to eat more vegetable and grain! Anything else I try to feed him (ex. rice, corn, peas, carrots, pasta) he takes one bite and spits it out. It seems to be a texture issue still. He gags on avocado, I figured that it would be ok because its kinda the same texture as the bananas he eats. But he hates it. The kid doesn't like cheese! What child doesn't like cheese! Hates grilled cheese sandwiches, hates mac and cheese. Won't eat any meat at all. Ok, its fine if he is trying to tell me he wants to be a vegitarian, BUT YOU HAVE TO EAT VEGETABLES FOR THAT! What do I do. Force him to eat? He will eat baby food vegtables out of the jar but if I make it mashed the same way he won't! Isn't he getting to old for jar food? I hate feeding him that anyway, I 'd rather him eat homemade. I don't think I am that bad of a cook. It tastes good to me when I make it. Anyway, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
