Is it me? My seven year old GS is small for his age, but he's a very healthy little boy. He is seldom ill and has fantastic levels of energy. He's a bright and lively child taking an interest in everything. However, my DD worries constantly about how little he eats.
I think he eats enough. He's given healthy food; it's a struggle to get him to eat vegetables and we camouflage them by shredding them into pasta, etc. He eats cereals, eggs, fruit, fish, some meat e.g. ham. He eats fruit like apples, pears,kiwis, grapes; he will eat pineapple and mango. He is reluctant to eat fruit for breakfast - DD says, 'We eat fruit for breakfast in this house and he's got to get used to it.'
However, I feel she serves him too much food and every meal becomes a battle ground. I try not to show my concern, but if he's full, he's full. I've tried to say to give him less so that he can actually finish a meal.
She says, 'Mum, he only eats enough to stay active. He's not eating enough to grow.'
It is me or is that just nonsense?
