My eleven year old lives on only a few food, I could never ween him and he's now very stubborn indeed. Refuses to try anything new.

Anyway have any experience of older children only eating a few foods? Any advice?

Best wishes

My best friend ate only chips and salad cream for a very long time. She would occasionally eat a banana. It caused her poor Dad much worry. SHe's 40 now and very healthy with a family of her own and she adores all food. For my friend it was about control.

She had lost her Mother and her Dad was very anxious himself...and this was the only thing she felt she could control. Have you seen a GP about him?
