Not Hungry?!

Over the past few days, my son has decided he doesn't eat anything anymore.  

At first, I thought he might have just been tired of the PB&Js that he's been having 4-5 days a week for months.
(By his own choice, he's loved them!)

But now, it's getting out of hand.  He has gone to bed the past 2 nights with virtually no dinner.

I feel awful.

Tonight, when I made spaghetti just for him because we were going to hit up YCs for Dan's early birthday dinner and he took 2 bites before pushing the fork away, I was beyond frustrated.
Spaghetti has always been one of his favorite dinners.

Hubby and I were trying to figure it out after Tyler went to bed, and I realized that it isn't really that he's just gotten picky, per se.  He has hardly finished his yogurt in the morning for breakfast the past 2 or 3 days, which if I had to pick his all-time favorite food, yogurt would be it.

French fries from McDonalds, probably #2 on his all-time fav list.  He eats 5 or 6 fries, and says he's done.

Everything else he takes one or two bites of and wants nothing more to do with it.

I'm at a total loss as to what to do about it anymore.

He can't keep going days without really having a decent meal.

What can I do about it?  Please someone tell me this is a phase that he'll grow out of quickly.  Anyone else had this issue with your toddlers?

  1. Don't worry! It's what toddlers do. Everything is just a phase, both the good and the bad. Ben will love mac n cheese one day and look at my like I just placed sushi in front of him the next. I figure as long as he gets some food at each meal along with some decent snacks (he's definitely my snacker) and he continues to gain weight, then you have nothing to worry about. Ben would love to play more than eat while Ashlyn would eat all day long if she could. Tyler's a cute boy!
