When my son was 18-months-old and practically not eating, I worried. He was still on the 10th percentile for growth so doctors considered he was perfectly healthy. But as a clinical nutritionist I knew better.
I wasn’t willing to wait until my son grew out of being a fuss eater because I wondered if he would. There was literally NO help for people whose kids were living on biscuits milk, hot chips and chicken nuggets. A doctor even told me ‘while he’s on formula he’s getting all he needs’. This was wrong and frustrating for me as a nutritionist to hear.
