We've got a situation going on here, so I am asking for suggestions.
Theo doesn't like to eat. We have a pretty tight budget, so its difficult to branch out and buy new things for him to try, for fear he will throw it away. He is suffering! He is obviously hungry, but often doesn't want to eat what we offer. So we totally freak out and make him pizza or chicken nuggets or breast, noodles, yogurt, sometimes cheese, bagels with butter, if he hasn't eaten much throughout the day. Where are the fruits and veggies! That's right, he eats less per week than what he ought to have in a day. I am worried, Habtamu is worried, about his nutrition. And we are tired, too. Theo is 21 months now, very active, but gets so crabby and irritable due to the lack of food. Its stressful. Meanwhile, he looks so sad after a few days of very little intake.
He wasn't a good eater before, otherwise I might just attribute it to attention seeking since Suvi entered on his turf. He does get a little jealous now (this is very recent) and doesn't even want Mom and Dad to talk to each other somtimes! But these behaviours seem typical for his age. However they are greatly exaggerated when he is hungry.
