My 5 year old who used to be on the 91st centile for height is now below the 50th and we think the gradual decline has been since he started not eating so well. We believe he only eats just enough food to keep him going because he wants to get down and play. He also eats quite slowly compounded by his constant talking instead of eating! It's a constant battle to ask him to keep eating!
Should we feed him richer food to "fatten him up"? Should we let him eat as much cereal as he wants before bed regardless of how little dinner he ate?
Any advice welcome!
