Help, I need ideas how to encourage my son to eat healthy food, his daily diet consists of: Breakfast: 2 x iced cakes & an innocent fruit smoothie Lunch: 1 x mini croissant, 5 x v.thin slices ham, 1 x tube yoghurt, 1/2 apple skin off & diced, pkt crisps & fruit squash drink Tea: 2 x sausages, chips & 1/2 small tin alphabetti spaghetti plus jelly & fruit
When he comes home from school he has still got the croissant, apple & crisps in his lunch box.
The only different things he'll eat are cheese & tomato pizza or chicken nuggets instead of the sausages for tea.
When son was a newborn until the age of 1 year he had laryngomalacia (flappy larynx) and he was very difficult to wean onto lumpy food, had to puree everything, plus has always been a very very slow eater.
But now he is just not interested in eating says its boring & takes up too much time, would rather be playing football
Both my husband & I have very good appetites & eat a balanced diet.
Any tips or advice would be much appreciated, thanks
