Our three-year-old son is quite picky when it comes to food. He has not been interested in eating fruits and vegetables, but recently he started to dislike certain meats as well. He would munch the food in his mouth, but not swallow it.
Is there anything we can do to encourage him to swallow his food? Or is it something that will pass after some time?
His daily food consumption is something like the following:
- 07:30 chocolate bread, cheese, 1 milk
- 10:30 1 yoghurt, 2 biscuits
- 12:30 rice, pork or chicken soup, eats a lot
- 16:00 1 milk, 2 biscuits
- 18:00 rice, pork or chicken soup, eats a little
We have been following the above routine for some time, but I wonder why only recently did he develop this habit of not swallowing his food.
