I know you should diagnose on the web but I'm starting to freak myself out.

Ds has just turned two and used to have a really good appetite and ate meat/chicken ect

Recently turns his nose up at most foods won't eat red meat hardly eats chicken.but Loves fish. Will eat veg not salad and loves fruit.

He has started to lick brick walls, stones, his shoes ect and will eat dirt. My oh googled it and the live strong web site said it could be vitamin defect or eating disorder Or serious illness.

I'm now freaking out, I though it was natural toddler development.

Anyone else's toddler do the same? Any advice? X

It sounds fine, the licking is a type of exploring.

At 2 his taste buds are changing and things that were nice before become bitter.
