Toddler Eating Issues

    Resident expert Dietician, Deb Blakley answers ParentTV members question: “My son started daycare yesterday. He has trouble eating and doesn’t manage solids well. Its an issue as he is starving for the time he is away from home. We usually spoon feed him mashed rice, lentils and veggies with puréed meat as he coughs on anything more solid. At daycare he puts cake, biscuits etc in his mouth and spits it out. What can we do to progress him to more solid food? He is 18 months old. His brother had trouble managing solids as well when he was younger”.
