Daniel is going through a phase of not eating his lunch at school and not drinking his drink.

We know that in the past he's had issues eating in the dining hall because it's noisy, but this improved. He has 1:1 support at lunchtime play and in class and the ladies check his sandwich box and encourage him to eat and drink more. They are usually successful getting him to drink some more but not eat some more.

We've already tried different foods in his lunch box as he eats a very limited diet. But he doesn't tend to go for it. One thing I'm thinking of doing is trying some new foods on picnics in the half term which can then translate to his lunch box if he likes them.

What else could I do? He gets moody in the afternoons and this could be why.

Oh that is a hard one. How do you get your kids to eat. I do not have a solution. Does he tell you what he wants to eat? I find that if my kids have some say then the chances of them eatting increases slightly. The normal things might not work. Scarlett lieks to use different things to eat like if I let her eat out of a measuring cup with a baby spoon. Another thing you can try is in the baby section they have squeeze pouches with fruit and veggie puree in them. I feed those to my kids occassionally.

Thanks ladies. He helps make his lunch the evening before so he chooses what goes in his box already. Thankfully he is FINALLY branching out a little food wise, perhaps he was just bored of his very limited diet.

I am having the same problem with Alice. She eats maybe 10 or less foods, and she's getting bored of them. She doesn't want to try new food, though. I had a therapist tell me that if children are hungry enough, they will eat. My sister tried it with her son(normal child) and just didn't eat for days. His psychologist told her to "Let him eat what he wants." So I guess this plan could go either way. I am so tired of cooking 4 different meals for my family!
