Eating Problems:2 year old son not eating
2006-02-26
Name: Rukma Sen
Since my son was six months he has been a very bad eater.He is two years now and i am still struggling . He can stay without food the whole day . At times we feel he is hungry and is cranky too but still will not have food . We tried giving him various types of preparations but of no use . He is underweight . He is just 9.5 kgs at 2 yrs . Even height wise i feel he is not growing . I have been working and now am planning to quit my work .It is really frustrating . He is only on liquid diet .Can anybody suggest what kind of food i should try to give my child which will help to increase his weight. Pls help.Also would like to know if this is a common problem among children as i don't see anybody i know facing a similar problem.

Hi mother,
It would be something like that he might not feel hungry and you have to adopt some medicine for your problem and then only you will be free from problem.

Hi Rukma,
Children would not eat properly at this age and you have to be run after them to make them eat.It would be better put the baby food which would be healthy if they eat only few.

Hi Sen,
It might be loss of apetitie. Nothing more than that,so you give some medicine which would create some hunger for baby.Then the kid will have food properly.

Hi rukmen,
When proper food is not taken by your kid,how does he grow.Try and try until he eats and make play physically then he would lose all energy and then will eat at a time.Try in this manner.It will work.

Hi Rukma,
I can understand your problem and you need to sort out this problem in some better way and it would be better if you share what you have done to solve the problem because many mothers do face the same problem only.

Hi Rukma,
Yes it is really frustrating for mothers when child does not take the food you can try to give some tonic or syrup for him to feel hungry and if not let him play a lot physically then i think he would feel hungry and may eat any thing.

Though I am working but i try to give him time after my office.
But he feels hungry anytime.

Well when my son wouldn' t eat and i was worried about his wieght i tried meal replacements. I would mix about half a bottle with a banana and some frozen berries. I then would blend it all up and use a bubble tea straw for him to drink it.You can also try a pedeatrician and see if there' s any classes in your area.

hi rukuma,

stop all liquids !!! let him play & play till he is VERY HUNGRY even whole day. but no liquids.

take a few days leave & try this.

i am sure u feel guilty or rather made to feel guilty that u should leave ur job.... this decision is entirely urs. sitting in front of the child may or may not help. just get u more frustrated.

i think someone elderly home person could help, sometimes they know how to !!

hope it works ...
pritee

my son had the same problem. his two and half now and use to wear clothes for a 12 mopnth old. i took himn too the nutrisionist and she told me to give him a bowl of cereal before bed time. he would never take it for me and i were ready to give up. so i started playing little games with him. like telling him he can only have a small bite of food. he started to eat little bits at dinner then and drink bout 10ml of milk at dinner time. i just ketp at it and now days he eats bit more and drink bout 50mls. just never get angry with him and have a battle at the table. i know its hard but really trh hard. and if ur done eating take the food away. dont forse him to much. he will eat eventually. make an appointment with a dietishian.

Hi Rukma..I know how you feel...My 2yr old daughter is also a very fussy eater and was quite underweight. My PD suggested pediasure and it has worked. In past six months she has gained weight,height and even her appetite has increased. I also tried Dabur janam Ghunti for incresing appetite. diet with flavours of lemon,pepper,ginger etc. got her interested in atleast trying the new food. It was quit a struggle but don't lose hope...even pureeing foods and feeding has brought me good results. good luck..meera

Subject:  same problem - 2 yr old does not eat
i have a similar problem with my son. he is also 2 plus. he never ever asked for anything to eat...till date. i force him on soup and custard everyday...and whatever least gets into his tummy, he is sustained by that only. But come summer, i am going to put him on banana shake. this will be really helpful and a good storehouse of energy. you can also try feeding banana shake in feeding bottle...maybe while your kid is asleep.
any more ideas...anybody...plzzzz i am desperate for any advice!!

RE:Baby not eating food
The same thing happened with my niece. She used to eat everything that was cooked and that too on her own, she used to drop a lot of it but still could manage to eat but then suddenly she stopped eating and got too picky.... - Manisha [View Message]
RE:Underweight kid- want suggestion to gain weight
Buy her things that she will like to eat. Kids usually like to eat things which are sweet and have a lil bit of chocolate in it. You can give her chocos for breakfast with milk. As it contains coco and everything she will put on weight.... - Himani [View Message]
RE:Not interested in food
If she likes milk and drinks it without any tantrums then you can bring different chocolate drinks for her. It will help her gain weight and some of them have vitamins in them too and milk has calcium so everything will benefit her.... - NN [View Message]
RE:Breakfast ideas for playschool
Along with these things you can bring different types of cereals for him like cornflakes, chocos, fruit loops etc. Eating this his stomach will also be full and he will also have milk with them so it is a good thing.... - NN [View Message]
RE:Dislikes eating
See i understand your concern and you are right you can not give her egg all day and everyday but do one thing, tell her that she will get egg only on one condition, that is if she eats what you have cooked for her.... - Ashna [View Message]
RE:Diet for 4 to 5 yrs kids
Kids are very moody and they eat only the things they like and one thing in particular and it gets very difficult to think about things that they will eat or else no matter what you cook for them it all goes to waste.... - NN [View Message]
RE:Child not Eating in time/properly
Children are moody and it is normal. The good thing is that your son eats if not always at least he is eating things that you give him. Don't worry of he is not eating the every time you give him food. Maybe he is not hungry.... - Indira [View Message]
