moms of picky eaters

Do you find LO getting sick a lot?

DS is a very picky eater - it's near impossible to get fruit/veggies in him.  He takes a daily vitamin and will eat some nutritious stuff but overall, it's not pretty.  We're also finding that he catches every virus that goes through his daycare.  Pedi says this is normal for kids in daycare but I'm worrying about nutrition.

How do  you supplement your picky eater's diet?

  • DD is a very pick eater and she used to catch everything at daycare but lately it has gotten better. If your already giving him vitamins my other suggestions would be pediasure, and orange juice or some type of juice that has lots of vitamin C.</p

  • No (knocks on wood).  My son is super picky but doesn't get sick often.  I swear by a multivitamin (gummy vites) and lots of sleep for kids.  DS does not eat many things, but I can get him to have some healthy staples such as PBJ, yogurt

  • DS1 is a picky eater (he pretty much only eats carbs... bread, cereal, crackers) but is also really healthy.  He is in daycare and only gets the occasional runny nose or cold.  He won't take a vitamin and we don't do anything to supple

  • Thanks for your thoughts and ideas.  I'd tried PediaSure but DS wasn't a fan.  So, we've tried Carnation Instant Breakfast with ice cream (as per pedi) and so far, so good.  We are on month #5 of one virus after another.  Some have
