Robby has suddenly (like overnight) become extremely picky about what he'll eat. He used to eat anything I put in front of him as long as (a) it wasn't bland and (b) he hadn't eaten it twice already that week. Now, he eats like 2 bites and then throws everything else on the floor, with an emphatic "no" at every toss. I know he's hungry because he's crying and trying to open the fridge, but as soon as I put the food in front of him, he decides he doesn't want it! I know he won't starve himself, but I don't want him to get any thinner; he's already got a flat tummy and now we can feel his hipbones when he lies down. He eats breakfast real well, but the other meals are sketchy. I have prepared up to 4 different items for him to eat sometimes, and started sending a smorgasboard to the sitter, but he's still being difficult.

I'm wondering if it's just a normal developmental thing at this age, or if it's more related to his sitter taking on a baby and him not being the only child there anymore, or if his easygoing eating days are over forever. Anyone have any insight on this?

I'm dealing with pickiness from my middle child Zoey she is almost 5. I don't recall her being that way as a baby. Olivia eats anything and everything.

We are two of a kind working on a full house

Winter has been tossing a lot of hers on the floor, too. I just give her three different things and a sippy. If she doesn't eat, she'll have a snack a couple hours later and eat then.

Well, that makes me feel better, thanks. Yesterday I discovered that if he had his own bowl (suctioned to the eating tray), he was MUCH happier and ate more. I guess he's just asserting his independence in every way possible!

DD used to eat everything too and now it is very difficult to get her to eat vegetables. I worry about her nutrition.
