with #3 EDD:01/2013 So in love with my sweet Swede and my bonus-son 10/25/98
He's growing fine now... probably faster than most toddlers, actually... but that's because he recently had a congenital heart defect repaired (the defect caused him to basically stop growing at about 5months).
I just want to make sure he is getting a well-rounded diet.
If he's otherwise healthy, I mean there is no physiological or psychological barrier to him eating and this is simply normal toddler pickiness, then as we say in this house. It's our job to provide nutritious food, it's our toddlers job NOT to eat it
Just keep providing a wide array, small portions of varied foodstuffs and his little body will lead him to fulfill his nutritional requirements on his own. Not all in one day or even in one week but his little taste of this, rejection of that, gorging on the other is most likely his body leading him to eat exactly what he needs right now for optimal growth and development.
Some days, I swear my son eats no more than a tablespoon of food from all meals and snacks offered, all day. Other days he eats like he'll never see food again.
Try not to worry (as if)
