I have a severely restrictive eater. HE will only eat a few foods. I would offer him high calorie stuff you know he will eat. We give things I never dreampt I would give my kids daily to keep weight up.

Hes not picky though like that there is no rhyme or reason to what he eats.

Also hes eating as much as the other kids here so im lost.

Today was typical and he ate

Nutren 250 meal replacement
Snack bar
Chipotle kids meal birrito, milk, chips,
Another bar and glass of water
A bowl of fruit

He still will eat Dinner and another meal replacement before bed

My daughter isn't a good eater at all. We had a GI appointment yesterday, and she is down almost a pound. She has egg, milk, and nut allergies and is on periactin (appetite stimulant). We have a scope scheduled for the 24th. It is so scary when they don't eat!

Your DS eats more than mine does!! If you find out how to get them to eat more let me know! Mine will at least eat a lot of yogurt, i think that's what's keeping his weight up.

We tested for allergies a couple years ago.
Depending on test results ill call his allergist and gastrologist.
