Answer: Hello dear. Here are few tricks that we tried with my daughter when she was REALLY little and ate hardly anything: Offer soft foods cut up in small pieces. He might be more inclined to actually put a soft bite of banana in his mouth than a crunchy cracker. Bananas, cooked peas and carrots, avocado, plain cooked macaroni, etc. And cut them smaller than you think necessary. Sometimes it helped to give my daughter a spoon and let her try to feed herself. She was more likely to keep it in her mouth, chew, and swallow it. Offer the new food first when he's really, truly hungry. Maybe while you're prepping breakfast, sit him in his high chair and give him a few bites of the banana to look at/play with/attempt to eat while you chop up the rest of the banana to go in his breakfast. Remain Calm. If you are anxious at mealtimes, he absolutely will pick up on that. With our daughter we knew she couldeat other things, she just didn't want to eat some of them. She's almost 4 now and her diet isn't amazing, but it varies more now than it did even 6 months ago, and every few months we're able to add a few more foods and textures to her diet. If you aren't seeing some kind of improvement over the next few months then you should definitely see doctor to determine if he needs to be assessed for any developmental issues. Hope this helps.
