I never had problems with my kids’ appetites until two months ago when my little boy turned 32 months old. What happened is still a mystery to me, but he used to eat anything and everything you put on his tray or plate. He would devour all of it like an adult.
Now, he won’t even try it if it is something new to his eyes!
My little girl, on the other hand, is still the good eater that she is. Vegetables, fruits, pasta, chicken, beef, pork, anything, you name it and she will just eat it like a good girl. She turned 16 months old yesterday.
