My 2 year old son is a picky eater too, he would only eat, noodles like pansit & spaghetti ang finger foods like biscuits & potato fries. His gain weight is rather slow and we're afraid that he may not maximize his growing age because of his miniscule food intake.

hi! my baby is 1 year and 4 months old and luckily, she eats everything i give her.. well maybe because right at the very beginning she started eating solid foods when she's about 8 months, i already introduced her to fish and vegetables with rice. She loves to eat anything tha has "sabaw".. well i believe that when a child is hungry, she would really find a way to eat. I suggest, not to give her in-between meals or mirienda so that during meal time, she feels hungry and hopefully she'll eat. it's better not to give her an option on what food she wants to eat because if she doesn't have a choice, she'll really eat. you should have to be firm and don't let your child be in control of the situation.. but that doesn't mean naman na papagalitan mo siya.. :) ooh,well goodluck mommy!=)

I had her pediatrician prescribe an appetie enhancer which I forgot to bring when I got to the drug store. So I got appebon nalang. I swear, ang pangit ng lasa and we put up a fight every morning. The package is deceiving. May picture pa ng apple so I thought it was apple flavor, hindi pala. On the 3rd day, I mixed it with her fav multivit syrup 1/2-1/2 and give 2 teaspoons of that. Medyo OK na kami. I'll just finish this bottle and will never buy the product again.
In fairness, there has been a positive change on her eating habits. Less scolding on the table, she even askes for snacks after breakfast and at snack time. Sometimes, she asks for 2nds on meal time.
There's this new appebon TV commercial and I noticed the package is different with what I bought. Is this a better kind or for older kids? Any feedback?

my son is taking cyl-10. ok sa kanya ito kaya lang pinastop ng pedia baka maover daw since appetite stimulant ata should be stopped after consuming a few bottles. (not sure ha)... sana hindi nalang ako nakinig. kasi nung binalik ko, wala ng effect...e ang sabi, pwede naman ng ibapwede icontinue yun kahit ilang bottles.

ang hirap din pakainin. kahit gutumin, hindi parin "magana" kumain. he eats a lot of rice pero konting ulam lang... he likes pork chops, fried chix and fried fish...minsan lang mag mechado pero sauce lang...tska ang bagal kumain. hindi sya pwede yung marami isubo... lokohan nga sa house, si ian pang teaspoon, si janelle (younger) serving spoon kung sumubo.

ok na rin kasi may intake parin ng various food, hindi nga lang balanced... pero siguro i would be asking too much ba kung gusto ko pareho sila ng younger sis niya kumain... as in lahat kinakain...

Hi Pink,

According to my pedia some appetite enhancer may affect brain development or something. If your pedia says its OK and its OK with you...then give it a try... pero kasi di ba goal lang naman natin is to stimulate their appetite siguro pag sanay na silang to eat larger amount or maging habit na nila yun...maybe we can stop na din...kasi we dont know the effect later years di ba....

Ingat po!!!

Kaya pala sabi ng Pedia niya sandali lang ang bigay ng Heraclene. Anyway, for our topic not to lead to appetite enhancing medicines (hey, maybe someone can start a thread on that), here's my update. The 1st brand of appetite enhancer will be finished soon (thank God, ang pangit nga kasi ng lasa) and I'll give her what her Pedia prescribed. After that, kung wala pa ring effect, We just have to accept her as she is. Like on Aug SP's article, Suzi Entrada has the same problem with their 1st Daughter. They call her eating habit the "supermodel diet". Like the Entrada couple, we'll just wait for her to come out.
I told my father about this dillema and I learned he had the same problem with me too. Genes?

Our pedia prescribed Propan naman for Mika when she didn't achieve the target weight gain. Since then, she's been eating a lot na! She's only 2 but she can finish an entire jumbo hotdog, rice and egg!  :o I'm planning to stop it narin kasi it's already been 3 months. That's what our pedia said. Hopefully she'll maintain her appetite. Also, I have been refraining narin from giving her too many in-between snacks.

Update ko lang po about my daughter's poor eating habits. Since Appebon and Heraclene worked little on her, her Pedia adviced us to do an Xray na for possibility of Primary Complex. Guess what? Positive nga. Matagal nang suggest sa amin yon, my husband took it lightly. She's very active, happy and energetic. I can't even remember the last time she got sick or had cough and cold so imagine how shocked we were. She had this skin test before for PTB but the result was not conclusive kasi exacto 8mm yung skin reaction niya. But since her poor appetite, an indication of PTB, was not solved by appetite enhacers, then it could be primary complex nga.
Now we're treating her and her eating improved.

Hi mommyjazz,

Don't get me wrong ha...I understand primary complex can be passed by an adult to kids. Do u wonder where ur  daughter got it?A physical check-up with adults in ur house may help kasi un ang ginawa ng friend when her daughter had this sickness otherwise hindi rin ma-treat well yung daughter mo if the adult is not being treated as well.

Hope this helps.....take care

Hi i'm a newbie! I also want to share my dillema with my 23 months daughter. Okay naman yung weight niya, medyo short lang sa height. Ang concern ko lang, minsan lang sya kumain ng rice, puro milk pa rin sya. And everytime na alam nyang mealtime na she would ask for milk. Sabi ng mom ko, hayaan ko lang since healthy naman ang milk. But I'm worried, di ba dapat she's eating three meals a day. tsaka, gano karaming rice ba kelangan nyang maconsume per meal?

Hi mommy joyce!

I already consulted my pedia regarding my daughter's eating habits. Sabi niya, it's still okay pa daw for a two year old na paunti unti lang kumain. Sometimes daw kasi sufficient na sa kanila ang milk to get them thru the day. Dadating ang time na sila na mismo ang maghahanap ng food...around 3years old daw.
don't force her to eat, lalo lang syang hindi kakain. Just set a good example, eat healthy foods. Kasi kung ano ang nakikita nyang kinakain nyo, yun din ang hihingin niya.
My pedia also changed my daughter's milk to pediasure...medyo mahal nga lang. Pero three bottles a day, complete meal na daw yun.
So far, compatible yung daughter ko sa pediasure. pati yung pagpoo-poo niya, okay na, dati kasi palagi sya constipated.

hi sis, we have the same problem. almost the same age yung anak natin. i asked his pedia kung may puwede ba ipainom. ayun he told me to ry mosegor vita - good for 2 mos lang tpos yung milk niya pinalitan na. Pediasure PLUS. i hope na maging ok, kasi kakastart ko lang. medyo pricey yung mosegor at pediasure plus, pero ok nalang din.

hi mommy joyce! lucky ka pa nga coz your 2 yr old is 14 kilos. you know what? my 3 1/2 yrs old is 13.5 kilos only. but i asked his pedia and normal pa naman daw yung weight niya. (atleast hindi siya underweight) but nagstart narin ako ng appetite stimulant which is mosegor vita. hindi ko pa nakikita yung effect kasi 2 days palang syang umiinom. though hindi naman sya mahirap pakainin actually he loves veggies and fruits. kaya lang he consumes small amount lang. pero i remember nung 2 palang sya, he'd rather drink his milk than eat solids. so dont worry, magbabago din yung baby mo after a while....  ;)

My son is 15months and eats anything and everything! His yaya (na yaya ko rin when I was a baby so feeling niya apo niya ang anak ko hehe) started giving him lugaw when he was just 7 or 8 months old ... around the same time his pedia advised us that we could start giving him food other than cerelac. When his first two teeth came out, she added meat and veggies to his meals ... naka blender at first then eventually mas chunky na yung kinakain niya. I think since early syang nasanay na may lasa yung food niya, he turned out to be a very good eater.  :P His current favorite is ube jam.  :)

Speaking of eating disorder, my youngest child, Adrian, had a quirky eating habit when he was still around 2 or 3. It was the opposite of "ayaw kumain" syndrome. He ate non-stop, especially rice.  He'd put mounds of rice on his plate and eat them all. I marvelled at his ability to chew a mouthful of food twice or thrice and then gulping it down. Often he'd throw up, but after his yaya had wiped the floor, he'd resume eating again.

Adrian outgrew the habit.  He's now in Grade six. Though on the chubby side, he now knows how to stop eating when he is full. An improvement, if you asked me.

Hi there. I got the same problem with my 1 year old and 1 month baby.  He doesn't want to eat.  Kailangan muna na pilitin mo sya na matikman. but then pag talagang ayaw at pinilit mo eh isusuka niya.  Lagi lang sya milk but then he keeps on gaining weight.  Am using Progress Gold, i tried to change it with Gain plus pero ayaw niya. I don't know how to encourage him to eat solid foods.

yung son ko (1 yr  8 mos) puro milk lang ang hinhingi, tpos lagi dami nasasayang na food. kung gsto niya yung food, yun at yun lagi ang pinapakain namin hanggang sa magsawa sya, then tuklas na naman kami kung ano ang papakain sa kanya. hay sobrang naiinggit ako sa mga batang ang lalakas kumain. minsan nga sinasabi ko sa kanya na"anak, buti ka nga may nakakain yung iba wala" sympre hindi niya ako naiintindihan.

gsto niya mga GERBER, eh how much each bottle, tpos sabi nila na hindi daw maganda sa mga bata yun nagiging pihikan. <hay, siguro nga, kasi wala pa sya 1 year old, gerber hilig niya>

so ayun sunod ko nalang sbi ng pedia niya, kung ayaw kumain, milk lang ng milk.

siguro kahit matagal pagtyagaan nalang as long she finishes her food.try to change her routine in eating,like for example,walang t.v para makapag focus yung bata.give her soft chewable foods,kung kailangan ipag himay para lang kumain right?or better yet,take her to  specialist, like her pedia,wag naman po sana pero baka may problema sa health niya.pag na check up siya dun makikita kung na gagain ba siya ng weight.hope this helps. :)

hi mommies, share ko lang po ito.  one of my nieces had primary complex when she was 2. prior to this, mataba sya at malakas ang gana. pero noong nag medication na sya for primary c, medyo nabawasan ang gana at pumayat. after the full term ng medication, nag back to normal ang wight niya although di na sya tumaba.  c yancy din, she took after my physique na slight noong bata pa ako.  for a while worried me na bakit slim ang baby ko, sabi ng pedia niya, look at the total picture:  weight-normal, motor, mental at psychosocial development- normal. appetite-okey. sabi niya, wag mag worry kasi everything okay.  yancy doesn't take any vitamins since maganda ang diet niya (tatay ko kasi cook sa bahay puro gulay at isda, once a week lang poultry at meat).  most kids na nagka primary medyo slight talaga ang built nila pero gumaganda ang weight nila after the medication naman.

This got me alarmed. Hindi kaya may PC din ang anak ko kaya hindi siya kumakain?

My son will be turning 3 this June and hindi talaga siya kumakain ng rice. Minsan pakurot kurot lang sa bread or biscuit, hotcake, empanada, pizza. Ganun lang pero never talaga na rice. Even spag ayaw niya. Pag burger kumukurot din lang siya sa burger bun. Pero before siya mag 1 year old okay ang appetite niya, kumakain siya ng rice nun basta may sabaw. Then nahospitalized siya due to gastroenteritis. Since then til now, never na siyang kumain ng rice. Pero malakas siya sa milk. Progress and Pediasure ang milk niya so healthy talagang tingnan ang anak ko, walang naniniwala, even his pedia, na hindi siya kumakain.

I gave him Appebon also as prescribed by his pedia, pero lumakas lang lalo ang intake niya ng milk, solid food, ganun pa din, pakaunti kaunti lang. Kahit may mga kaagaw na siya sa food pag andiyan mga pinsan niya or kahit isabay namin siya sa dining table, wa epek talaga.

Napapaisip tuloy ako di kaya may primary complex din siya. Pero hindi naman siya madalas magkasipon or ubo eh. Hay big problem talaga.

mommies, my nanay is a retired midwife and when both my niece and daughter had their episode na lack of appetite, although nireseta ng mga pedia na mag take sila ng appetite stimulant, hindi binigyan ni mother ko, instead we changed their diet as in over haul.  over time, bumalik ang gana nila. pag po over stimulated ang bata, minsan nadi distract kaya di kumakain.

mommy boninay, try mo ibang flavor ng milk.  choco milk okey din naman. masarap yung lactum tsaka sustagen. tsaka u can get calcium din from other sources aside from milk, di ko lang alam kung maty type ng baby mo kasi broccoli, cauliflower ay pwede din pala taho but not too much arnibal tsaka not everyday. good luck. ;)

u can try alternating the milk with a chocolate flavor of same brand.may napanood ako about sipahh straw.flavored straw siya(chocolate,strawberry,etc)so when she drinks milk,may lasa,maeenjoy pa niya yung straw.normally,pag malakas na solid intake ng bata,humihina yung milk intake,so we really have to try other tips and tricks to make toddlers drink milk.

thanks ha. actually tried it already, hay naku talaga...kaloka sya.  I will try din yung sustagen.  Yung nido 1+ na choco flavor ayaw din--gatas daw!!! Sa sobrang depression ko kahit milo at chuckie pinapainom ko, at iyon ang gusto niya. Naku para makainom nang nido 1+ choco flavor kailangan yung tetra pack nang chuckie i-refill nang nido and tell it to her na chuckie yun at sa baso na niya inumin. hay naku talaga

naku mommi of lorian, yung anak ko nga two and half pa lang, twice na lang siya inum ng milk ngaun, pagkagising at bago matulog.. before kasi nakakatatlo pa siya,pero sabi ng pedia ko ok lang daw yun kasi nga kumakain na siya ng solid foods. this past few days, napapansin ko na medyo humihina na siya kumain ng rice, siguro nagsasawa na rin siya sa kinakain niya mahilig kasi siya sa may sabaw.kung dati nakaka dalawang bowl siya, ngaun isa na lang tas minsan half na lang nauubos niya.. isip ko naman hindi kaya dahil sa may sipon siya ngaun kaya wala siya masyado panlasa? or dahil din sa panahon dahil mainit.. kasi sabi ng pedia niya pag mainit daw panahon mahina daw kumain ang bata at mas prefer pa nila uminum ng water or juices. ng ginagawa ko ngaun, pag kunti lang eat niya, binibigyan ko siya ng cereal para lang makabawi.

youngmom san nakakabili nung sippahh straw?

share ko lang, one time kasi while waiting sa clinic ng pedia ni gyan, ask ko yung isang nanay kung ano milk inum ng anak niya kasi ang lusog talaga. ask ko nga kung malakas kumain ng rice, sabi nung nanay hindi nga daw, malakas lang sa gatas, ang ginagawa niya, yung progress gold and lactum na chocolate flavor mixed niya.. like 4 scoops ang progress tapos 1 scoop ng lactum choco.
nag try ako before kay gyan nung mga one year and half siya kasi hindi rin siya palakain ng rice nun.. ok naman sa kanya, nagustuhan niya rin. mga one month lang ako nag try nun tapos balik na naman sa pure progress.

Ganyan din yung sa eldest ko, mosegor...effective.

Dati halos 6 bottles a day sya ng milk, ayaw mag solid. Pero ngayon, 2 bottles na lang (morning and afternoon) tapos walang tigil sa paghingi ng food. nakaktuwa, mahilig sya sa fish and veggies. Favorite niya ngayon ampalaya and kangkong... ;D

yung 2 yr old ko naman napaka tamlay talag kumain so pinainum namin sya ng appebon. adivse ngpedia pero up to three months lang. tapos ang milk niya gain plus nuon. so okay naman naging sobrang matakaw. after 1 and a half months tinigil ko na appebon vitamins. ginawa ko na lang nutroplex kase okay na appetite niya. tlagang after two days ang tamlay na ulit kumain. to make my story short, binalik ko na sya ulit sa appebon . kaya eto nag takaw takaw na naman. every 4 hours nahingi ng milk, bottle or sa baso. :)

I saw sa ad ng Nido, yung fortified is from 2-99 years old. I even used the sippah straw to have variety but my husband told me that sippah is not safe daw because of recent discovered ingredient it has that can be harmful.

Bfeeding is best. Breastfed babies are not as chubby as formula fed because of the higher fat content in cow's milk. I'd say you're lucky having a toddler who likes fruits and vegetables. Ask your pedia for suggestion on variety of fruit and veg based foods you can offer. Goodluck, I hope negative ang test niya.
My 1.6 yo toddler doesn't like formula milk too. Loyal siya sa milk ko. He is not chubby but very healthy. Matakaw naman siya sa solids, opposite ng Ate niya.

Hi mommies... naku, tiyagaan lang talga magpakain ng mga babies.. yung anak ko halos puro milk, sabaw na walang rice at biscuit din siya nun..nakuha lang talga sa tiyaga. dati 2-3 subo lang niya masaya na ako.. ayaw niya rin kasi yung texture ng rice nun. Nag appebon ako effective naman kaso hindi naman pwede matagalan pala yun so i switched to cherifier plus ceelin ang take niyang vitamins..
effective din naman..
2 years and 3 months na siya at nakakaubos na ng isang bowl with rice and soup.. dati 2-3 spoon lang  sya tas nadadagdagan lang habang nasasanay na siya  kumain..kaso lahat ng klase ng sinigang na ulam yun ang kinakain niya palagi pag nilagang baka or other soups kunti lang kinakain niya..

gusto ko rin sana siyang matuto kumain ng fruits kaso ayaw niya lasa.. one time lang siya kumain ng banana tapos nun hindi na nasundan.. paano kayang way para masanay ko siya? any advices?

ask ko lang mga mommies,, ok lang ba sa 2 years old uminom ng prune juice yung del monte brand? kasi one time pina inum ko siya nun puro at kunti sugar, nag tae naman siya, kung once siya dumumi eh naka 4 na beses siya nun at malambot.. :)

hi po! Lam ko kc prune juice pampa lambot dn siya ng popoh..kaya siya dumi ng dumi.

I started this thread because my toddler (now 5yo) is hard to feed. There has been an improvement when she turned 4 but til now, there has to be some scolding for her to finish her plate. My solution is to give her small frequent feedings. She would finish her meal along with other family members, she doesn't get left alone on the table anymore and take another hour to finish (our usual setting) and she askes for snacks every 2-3 hours. I don't always have the time to fix her something to eat so I stock up on ready-to-eat snacks like cupcakes, fudgee bars, juice packs in a foodbox she can easily reach when she's hungry.

nahihirapan din ako magpakain sa baby ko. she is 1 year 7 months. she only eats rice and fruits. ayaw ng kahit anong ulam. dati fish and chicken at konting gulay pero ngayon wala na. mas gusto pa niya dumede ng dumede sakin e hindi naman na ganun kalakas ang milk ko. kagagaling lang namin sa pedia kanina try ko daw ang appebon. pero ngayon ko lang nabasa dito na ppwede palang symptom ng primary complex ang pagiging picky eater or poor appetite. ano-ano pa ba ang symptoms ng primary complex?

I briefly attended Maricel-Laxa Pangilinan's Mommy Talk yesterday at SM North. This topic was asked kasi laging paluan nalang daw ang 2 niyang anak pag oras na nang pagkain. Maricel answered that if they won't eat, don't force them kasi magugutom din daw sila and will ask for food later. Sayang hindi ko natapos yung program, marami pa sigurong binanggit about it.
Sis Dhen2, try giving your baby formula kung di na kaya ng breast mo, kasi mas naging effective sa 5yo daughter ko ang Nido than appebon. Yung 3 mos weight gain niya sa appebon is equal to 3 weeks milk therapy (2glasses/day). There's another topic about Primary Complex, check that out sa Chld's Health.

good thing I found this thread!
My son is not a picky eater, he eats everything. the problem is he wants to feed himself and yet he cant hold a spoon yet. Ayaw niya na mag pasubo. I dont know anything na pwedeng i-feed sa kanya na pwedeng nyang hawakan na hindi nadudurog before it can reach his mouth, kasi pag nadurog na pinaglalaruan niya nalang  :-[ he is only 12 mos, and very independent na. i tried giving him pediasure pero ayaw niya yung lasa. He drinks 3 10oz milk a day (NAN HW2). And eats a lot of breadsticks, cookies and cereals na walang milk. Basta kung ano yung mahahawakan niya yun yung isusubo niya. Ano po kayang finger foods na pwedeng ibigay na nutritious naman. Im running out of ideas  :-\

meron daw po side effect pag matagalang intake ng Heraclene & appebon. I think it has something to do with the liver. Pediatricians know this.

Yung all-around katulong lang namin nagbabantay sa kanya. Ngayon hirap na ako uli i-introduce sa kanya ang rice. Paano ko ba uli mababalik kay bebe ko ang pagkain ng rice, lugaw?

help mommies and daddies!
my 1.5yo son isnt eating well. at first i thought because he was teething. but it has been more than a month and still he doesnt eat much (or any). bonus na lang pag naka 1-2 subo sya, minsan rice lang. even cerelac ayaw na niya. he used to be a good eater. i dont know what happened. some says maybe because of selos (i have a 1mo old NB kasi) but i tell them i find time naman for my first born even if hindi ko sya buhat (because CS ako and i cant yet). i also interact with him even if nasa yaya sya. i admit madalas kay yaya sya. but every now and then i sit beside him and when he wakes up in the morning ako nakikita niya katabi (dad sleeps with our NB).

so this is our problem now, how to get him to eat. skinny na nga sya though hindi naman din sya tumaba even nung infant pa.

inputs please, im getting desparate. TIA

Hi mommy,

ganyan din ako before kay baby ko (he's 20months old now) pero kahit ngayon may mga moments din siya na ayaw niya kumain.

One technique I found effective is to let your baby touch his food. According to babycenter website, mas mabuti daw na hinahawakan ni baby yung pagkain kasi pakiramdam nila they are in control. At nakakatulong din ito sa pagdevelop ng kakayanan ng batang nguyain (chew) yung pagkain sa bibig niya.

Try to slice an apple in bite size (tanggalin mo yung balat kasi nakakasamid ito) then ilagay mo lang sa plate niya or sa ibabaw ng high chair niya. You'll find your baby actually playing with the bits of apple tapos kakainin din niya yun.

Kung medyo malaki laki na si baby at kaya ng humawak ng utensils niya, paglagay mo siya ng rice or cereal sa bowl niya, give him/her the spoon, makikita mo susubukan niya ding kutsarahin yung food sa plate. It could be messy, pero ano ba naman yung maglinis ka sandali dun sa joy of seeing your baby enjoy his own food, di ba?

You may also try to experiment on some recipes.

Hope you find this helpful, for baby friendly recipes, you can try my dishes (well, revised recipes) hehe, here are the links:

sis hindi mo pa ba sya napatikim ng mga jollibee or other food na may lasa na? i mean mga adult foods.. kasi mahirap na talaga pakainin kapag ganon.. kasi masarap na sa panlasa niya so kapag cerelac or baby food aayawan niya na talaga.

kami dito sa bahay kapag nasa resto will make sure na walang vetsin yung inorder namin before namin bigyan si baby kung hindi sya pwede sa food nag ask na lang kami ng rice para atleast kasabay namin sya sa pagkain at hindi naiinggit

Post by: riddermark on February 09, 2010, 03:29:26 pm
thanks for the tips sisters!
actually, kahit anong food ayaw niya. madampi lang sa lips umiiwas na. paminsan ok ang cracker kahit kalahati lang kinakain tapos aayawan agad. minsan ayaw kahit ano.

tinry din namin chicken ng jollibee tikim lang. nilalaro din niya spoon pinahawakan namin lately, di naman sumusubo or kahit yaya magsubo. parang automatic pag me dumampi food sa lips niya repell agad sya  :-\

will check your recipes thirdysmom  ;)

sis maya, ano pa kayang resto food pwede hmmm.
kasi iwas sana ako sa vetsin. tapos G6PD si baby, dito sa bahay di sya malutuan ng yaya ng maayos kasi sabi ko less salt. bawal soya so walang toyo. prito prito ayaw din.

hay nako. 1.5 motnhs na syang walang kinakain  :'(

Post by: ♥♥♥ RXmom ♥♥♥ on February 09, 2010, 03:52:55 pm
sis si baby saka lang namin pinapakain ng prito kapag isda then yung white meat lang ng isda. may sariling food si baby ginagawan ng mil ko..

giniling (1kilo kasi binibili tapos hatiin yun into 7parts for 1 week na food ni baby then yung part ng giniling eh wag yung mataba.. mas maganda yung puro laman lang)

veges (malunggay, sayote, brocolli, cabbage) yan ang mostly veges na hinahalo ni mil ko sa food ni baby pero hindi lahat ng veges na yan eh sa isang lutuan.. for example.. ang veges mo malunggay or pwede naman sayote at cabbage basta bahala ka mag mix and match sa veges na ilalagay mo.

bigas 1 1/2 cup

water siguro half nung paglulutuan mo but yung maliit na lalagyan lang ha.

samasama na yan lulutuin.. wala kang ihahalo na kahit ano ha! then once na maluto luto na medyo palamigin mo then saka mo iblender.. good for 1 day na yung food na yan kaya hindi mo na kelangan problemahin kakainin ni baby.


kapag dinner naman.. binibigyan namin sya ng sarili nyang  plate para kumain syang mag isa.. ang maganda lang sa anak ko hindi mapili sa pagkain.. maski ampalaya gustong gusto niya or kahit sabaw lang ng nilaga. hindi namin binibigyan ng sabaw ng sinigang kasi sabi nila masama pa daw sa mga kids yun.. maasim daw yun so masira daw ang sikmura ng bata. btw hindi din lahat ng veges at fruits pwede na kainin ng anak ko.. more on strawberry, banana, apple and peach. kasi may mga fruits na malamig sa sikmura.. pati veges hindi din lahat. parang ang arte pakainin ng anak ko noh pero maganda dun masasabi kong healthy yung mga kinakain niya at hindi makakasama sa kanya. basta always remember na iba ang adult food sa baby food :D


ay sis baka hindi pa daw na open yung gana niya sa pagkain kaya sya ganyan.. basta chinese dami alam pagkadating sa health.. hindi ko maintindihan pero sinusunod ko na lang kasi wala din naman masama kung gawin ko. hehe

before naman sya nawalan ng appetite ok naman sya kumain. rice giniling and 1 veggie din sya na halo halo at malambot yung rice. ayaw niya ng sabaw. ok naman malakas kumain. bigla na lang nitong january.

try daw sabi ng pedia ang appebon pero wrestling muna sila ni yaya sa pagpapainom kasi ayaw niya ng syrup (5ml vs drops na 1ml lang). yung dating vitamins niya na ok sa kanya ayaw na rin niya ngayon.

tinatry ko din naman to spend time with him and play kahit a few seconds na sisingit while the little babe is sleeping.
mommies, wala naman sobrang reaction si kuya pagnakita niya hawak ko si bunso. i sit near him kasi gusto rin niya makipaginteract kay bunso. yun nga lang madalas inaalis sya ng yaya dahil baka panggigilan.

you think kahit wala syang pinapakita na crying or kung ano man obvious signs of selos (other than not eating), manifestation ba etong di niya pagkain?

oh boy, what should i do. di ko naman sya pwedeng buhatin at sobrang likot pa man din tsaka kahit papano mabigat.

Sis, napa check mo na ba si baby if he has primary complex? Isang symptom kase ang poor appetite. Usually pag alam ng pedia na mahina kumain ang bata pinapatest kaagad for PC. Kahit hindi siya sipunin and ubuhin pwede siya magka PC. Ask the pedia if you could have him checked through xray and skin test.

Post by: riddermark on February 10, 2010, 12:41:31 pm
^ im expecting nga na magsabi si pedia about PC. kaso hindi. di naman din ako nagsasalita pa to have him checked.  baka gusto muna ng pedia i try other solutions? pero ganon ba dapat agad mommy? PC agad iisipin? i've read nga din dito sa SP na kahit hindi sakitin at kahit active nagpopositve pa rin ng PC.

i hope wala si baby kasi ang hirap painumin ng kahit ano kahit vits.

Hindi naman sa ayun kaagad ang isipin pero madami kasing factors kung bakit poor appetite. One way kase to solve a problem is to find the cause. You wouldnt know naman if he has pc or not unless you have him checked.. Wala din naman mawawala diba. Maybe you can bring this up with your pedia? My son kase has pc too and poor appetite din. He is very active at di naman siya sipunin and ubuhin before he was diagnosed. Malakas din siya kumain dati until later part last year talagang humina at very picky na. He recently got sick with pharyngitis kaya sobrang namayat so I asked his pedia if i can give him appetite stimulant.. Ayun effective naman sa kanya and we also switched na to pediasure so he would gain enough weight.

hello! my kid is 2 years and 4 months. he downs around a liter and a half of milk in 24 hours(he's on frisogrow). we get to feed him cerelac in the morning and another in the evening. he gets to join my wife and i over dinner but he hardly eats rice and the viand so my wife sometimes prepares soups like squash soup or macaroni. he enjoys "sabaw" as well but he seldom swallows the rice that he has chewed. good thing though is he is tall and heavy (he's about 3" and weighs 16.2kgs) but i think he'd grow even bigger if he gets to eat a balanced, solid diet. is it okay if i spiked his cereal with osterized meat and veggies?

Hi mommies.
I have a 19-month-old baby girl. Problem ko is she doesn't like to eat solid foods. Malakas sya mag-drink ng milk (gain plus), at dati matakaw din sya sa solid foods. Pero when she started to become very active, as in super likot na, ayaw na niya kumain. Gusto nalang niya un dede niya para dala niya kahit san sya mag-akyat2. Bihirang bihira sya mapakain ng solid. Ok naman baby ko, hindi sakitin, hindi din sya payat or maliit. Pero nag-aalala ko kasi hindi naman enough yung milk lang, tsaka gusto ko masanay sya kumain ng solid foods.

Sabi ng pedia niya, tiisin ko raw wag ko bigyan ng dede. Ganun ginagawa ko, minsan effective. Pero madalas, hindi. iiyak lang talaga ng iiyak pero hindi kakain, dede pa rin hihingin. Ano pa kaya pwede ko gawin?  :(

Same question here, pano kaya magugustuhan ni baby kumain ng solid food?

Mga mommies, maybe you can try small frequent feeding. Try to give milk every 2-3 hours sa mga baby, 30 ml ok na. Sa mga toddlers give them finger foods kapag busy sila naglalaro. Like cookies,cut apples, wafer sticks, cupcakes at iba pa place it beside them na within reach nila. Pakonti konti pero madalas na pagkain is better kesa sa isang kainan na napakarami tapos hindi rin kakainin.
Baby ko din ginugutom ko pero I make sure na hindi pa talaga gutom. after eating or drinking milk, he is going to play, after 1 1/2 hours anticipate ko na na gutom sya para hindi sya iiyak at magtatantrums. kasi pag sobra gutom na mga baby iiyak talaga sila ng sobra para mabigay na natin ang gusto nila.

Before, gumana na syang kumain ulit kc naisip ko baka gusto niya mashed yung rice so ginawa ko, nagpatabi ako ng "am" sa MIL ko tuwing magsasaing tapos pag dinner na hinahaluan ko sya ng patatas, veggie na mashed din..ok sya kanya, gusto niya. Kaya lang nitong huli di ko na sya nppakain kc wlang "am". nakakalimutan ng MIL ko magtabi. Pag pinapakain ko ulit, ayaw na! Haay....di ko na alam gagawin ko. Nasasanay na sya ng puro dede na lang, walang solid food intake

hi there!

i have a 14mo. old baby, i started feeding her when she was six months old and i did not encounter any difficulty in doing so, for she eats everything i put onto her mouth. but when she turned 8months old, that's when my problem arised.

it all started when i changed her milk from Promil to Enfagrow A+ since the prior milk caused her to have diarrhea, since then she'd been drinking milk as if it's gonna be her last. In a day, she can have at least 10bottles with 8 oz. content each.  And mind you, it wasn't a cheap milk so i am starting to worry about my budget and i am also anxious if the nutrition she's getting from it will suffice for her growth.

So, about three weeks ago, i tried not to give her milk on daytime instead feed her with solid foods, but to my disappointment she won't even finish one spoon of porridge.

please help me....i will gladly appreciate all the replies and suggestions.

thank you.

mommy roma

hello mommy roma! magka-age pala baby natin and you know what, that is also my dilemma weeks ago.I had a difficult time feeding my baby boy,Progress Gold milk niya
( recently ko na lang switch sa Nido Jr.) the thing is,he doesn't want to eat rice.im worried kase limited lang nakukuha niya nutrients since di nga sya kumakain meal,mas gusto pa niya cookies and bread na although ok lang naman,di naman enough nutrients. every mealtime talaga is hard for us.Actually yung intake naman niya ng milk,ok naman usually 8 oz. every feeding then 7-8x a day.

then just last week nagbago ihip ng hangin sa baby xian ko,like na niya ulet ang rice kase before cookies lang solve na sya.. after a little prodding and sort of playing with him (just like the mommy in the tv commercial.hehe) eh na-encourage ko na din sya,patience lang talaga kase di ba sometimes nakafrustrate pag ayaw niya kumain.nakikita niya na naiinis tayo and it doesn't help.so as for me,everytime na sumusubo sya,clap clap kami so tendency susubo ulit sya kase nahahappy sya na pinapalakpakan namin sya because of his accomplishment..  then i let him hold his utensils during feeding time tapos sya na magsusubo kase naiirita sya na pinipilit kumain.usually pag breakfast,koko krunch at yung milk niya na progress gold ang inihahalo ko at gustong gusto niya..so ayun.. so far so good naman mommy.try mo din. :)

Hi mommies,

Medyo may problem ako ngayon sa 2yr old son ko pagdating sa pagkain every meal. Never naman namin naging problema 'to dati. In fact kumakain na nga sya mag-isa and madami sya nakakain. Pero lately pag ayaw niya kumain he covers his mouth or he face the wall. Tapos balik na naman kami sa sinusubuan sya para lang kumain. And he has to be busy, either playing his toy cars or manood ng thomas & friends sa laptop, para lang mapakain sya. Hayzzz! Ano bang dapat kong gawin?

siguro nga sis na-spoil namin, lalo na ni hubby. sinanay kasi na pag kumakain nanood sa laptop o kaya may pinagkakaabalahan na toys. tska pag nagtantrums bumibigay agad si hubby. kesa daw umiyak ng umiyak. kaya pag ako na nagbawal ayaw makinig sa akin. tsaka pag may gusto sya gusto niya masusunod agad. minsan kinukwentuhan ko din habang kumakain para maubos niya pagkain.

kung sa akin lang ayoko talaga na kakain sya ng junk foods kaya lang pag nakita niya na kumakain tita niya nakikikain din. tsaka ngayon di na ko bumibili ng coke. nung nandito kasi uncle niya halos araw-araw may coke kahit pagbawalan ko sya na uminom sya pa rin nasusunod. kaya di na ko bumibili ngayon. pati si hubby sinabihan ko na wag bibili.

in fairness sa anak ko, mahilig naman sya sa fruits. kahit anong fruit kinakain naman niya.

try to keep his toys po pag kakaen po para masanay sya ,. kausapin mo din si hubby na pag sinasaway mo si baby eh wag niya aluin po si baby para may katakutan sya , this may sound na mommy is the kontrabida pero i  believe na dapat po kahit pano may kinatatakutan ang mga anak, either father or mom, para balance po at di sya lumaking brat po ^^ ,.

Kanina kausap ko sisters ko dyan sa pinas thru skype. Sila mismo nakita nila son ko covering his mouth dahil ayaw kumain. Pinakitaan nila ng toy cars anak ko para kumain. Kumain naman pero di pa rin naubos. Sabi ng ate ko baka daw hinahayaan ko kumain ng sweets, lalo na chocolates, kaya nawawalan ng gana sa pagkain. Guilty ako dun! hehe. Kaya itatago ko na mga chocolates sa ref, dun sa hindi niya makikita pag pinabuksan niya.

May I ask na din. What time ba dapat painumin ng vitamins si baby? Ako kasi sa gabi, after dinner.

hi mommy.

my baby is 21 months old and ganyan pa din sa baby mo - hirap pakainin. but she still eats cerelac and gerber.

try mo yougurt. also soup, any dish na masabaw, lagyan mo lang konting rice, mashed veggies and fish or chicken.

pasta and other kinds of noodles (sotanghon, canton, bihon, basta hwag lang masyadong mahaba, need to cut to manageable size)

observe mo din what she likes. usually kasi yung mga walang lasa gusto ng baby ko so i give that to her.

as per baby reference books and other materials, normal for babies and toddlers to be picky eaters. we just need to introduce and re introduce new food. if your baby doesn't like what you give him/her today, baka some other day, tikman na niya.

good luck sa atin  :D

@ Mommy Jo:

Maayos na din ulit kumain anak ko ngayon. Di na niya kino-cover mouth niya. Kain din ng kain in between meals pero kumakain pa din during meals. Tinago ko na din mga chocolates para di niya makita pag pinapabuksan ref. Morning ko na din sya pinapainom ng vitamins.

Hi, mommywalrus

In my humble opinion, I think you shouldn't force your child to eat too much rice if she doesn't want to. Your child is only a year old and she can still rely on milk as the  main source of nutrition.

There are many other sources of carbs and proteins other than rice. It's good that she eats bread though, that's good enough. Gradually introducing her to meat would also help. However if you really want her to eat more rice maybe you could experiment on making yummy meals like spaghetti sauce with rice, strawberry&banana cerelac with rice, etc. Trial and error lang. Hope this helps!  8)

Hi mommywalrus,

My son used to be like that but eventually he eased in into eating rice. Minsan may sawa factor din, he didn't like meat before, all veggies and fruits lang but now he likes hamburger very much. Also, you can combine the foods that your baby likes and the food that you want her to eat. We used to topped rice with grapes para lang kainin niya and successful naman :) I read somewhere that sometimes it takes 14 times to taste the food before the baby would really get accustomed to its taste and texture. Be patient and creative lang...good luck!

hi mommywalrus,

kasabay nyo po ba si baby during meal time?

it would be a great help if she sees you eating rice... then while eating, you can talk to her as if rice is so yummy.. with facial expression please... kids easily get curious sa mga bagay na tingin nila eh masarap... so let her feel that you really like eating rice... i'm sure one of these days she'll imitate you and kakain na rin sya ng rice.

this is what i do with my daughter. epektib!  ;D hehe...

Sanay kasi tayong mga Pilipino sa rice kaya we find it alarming kapag di mahilig sa rice ang bata.

I suggest you find an alternative to rice, for now. Something with the same benefits as rice. Potatoes, squash, bread. Ang important naman is the nutrients intake.


Tama rin yung sabe ni sis 'maarte' - kung nakikita niya kayo later on maiintindihan din niya na part of meal ang rice. 1 year old pa lang naman. :)

my 14-month old son doesnt eat rice too. Ganun din, bread ang gusto niya. Tamad siya magchew and swallow. Pero I dont force him to eat. Ilang pedia narin kasi nagsabi sakin not to make eating an issue. Wag daw mag-force feed kasi lalong negative magiging impression ng bata sa eating.

So right now, 6 bottles of 8oz of milk a day parin tapos patikim tikim lang sa table food namin. Usually niluluwa lang niya or kakain mga tatlong baby spoons lang.

Siguro pag nakakita sya ng ibang bata his age eating real meals maeengganyo sya but for now, chachagain ko muna ang patikim tikim niya.

Awesome, awesome feedback mommies! I'm starting to get worried kasi she barely eats rice talaga. Ang favorite niyang kainin is french toast. And wheat bread with cream cheese and scrambled eggs. Pero pag binigyan mo na ng kanin na may sabaw, ilang subo lang ayaw na. But I guess you moms are right. I shouldn't worry. She'll eventually learn na masarap lumamon ng kanin! :)) Salamat ng marami sa replies mommies! If you got tried-and-tested recipes for your kiddos, pahingi na rin! hehe. Thanks a lot!!!

sis follow the food pyramid para di ka mahirapan. when you go to grocery, make sure you have all kinds, from chicken to beef, fish to veggies, dairy, fruits, etc. then refer to the net for suggestions on toddler foods. mahirap talaga pag toddler, very picky. pero ang advantage mo lang is parati naghahanap ng food anak mo, so it's easier to introduce new food.

stay away muna from chocolates. and instant noodles/pancit are not that advisable. they can taste it probably once in a while pero never everyday, kase salty and oily yun sis.

cereals are okay. if like niya honey, merong mga honey coated cereals. yogurt is advised din, yung mga strawberry, mango and even plain tapos lagyan mo nalang fresh fruits na like niya say banana. pasta is advised din kay AK before kase nga very picky sya. ayun mahilig sa sopas. you can also try fried fish, tapos sa rice ka mag-mash ng boiled calabasa.

mommy baka dahil naiiba na ang focus, likes and dislikes ng baby mo kaya wala na siyang gana.
baka ngayon mas prefer na niya magplay na lang ng maglay rather than eating. my ganyang pangyayari talga.
but if si baby mo is not underweight ok lang yan, importante kahit di na siya matakaw what his eating are healthy foods.

i am a mother of a nearly 16 month old baby. lately he has colds & cough probably because of the weather..i noticed lately he doesn't want to drink milk. during the time i am away at work i would discover he would only finish 1 bottle (minsan hindi pa nauubos) buti sana if he eats solid food pero hindi rin sya mahilig kumain may time pa na after 2-3 spoons (not spoon full pa nga e) he would quit eating & would play with his food...i am super worried i tried switching vitamins pero wala rin...i hope polyvisol does help him...to experienced mothers can you help me with this problem...i don't get to spend time with my son coz i am a working mother & i leave him with my mom to take care of him while i am working but i still want to take care of him & give him the best care possible...

help mommies...he is already underweight...

mommy, have you consulted your pedia about the condition of your baby? may masamang nararamadaman baby mo kaya di sya makakain or milk, and probably its due to colds & cough, or you wouldnt know baka may problem sa lalamunan niya. yun nakakatakot sa babies eh, they cant tell saaan ba masakit sa kanila. so better pa-check mo sya sa pedia just be on d safe side.

hope your boy's gonna be ok.  :)

hi memejo, my baby naman humina pag eat niya ng solid foods puro milk lang siya he is 1 year and 5 months now i am also worried about him, kasi before lakas niya kumain, he is ok naman at wala sakit, last night i tried to check his mouth kung may tumutubo ba siya teeth or maga lalamunan niya pero iyak sya todo so hindi ko na check ng maayos.. at his age dapat may solid foods na sya at hindi puro milk lang kaya worried me to him.. hindi ko alam kung may effect ba ang pagpalit ko ng vitamin c niya from pedcee drops to pedzinc  drops last week  dun kasi nag start na nawalan siya ng gana sa solid foods i don't know kung may effect ba un.and about your baby yes u should bring him to his pedia for you to know what is the real reason why your son is like that... lalo na at nagkasakit pala siya..

My son, 17mos old, hindi parin mahilig kumain. Akala niya ata baby pa siya and still relies on milk for his daily nourishment.

Bale nagstart ako sa jarred baby food when he was 4mos, then cerlac and milupa around 9mos. Everything went well until it was time to transition him to table food. Ayaw niya. Kahit rice + sabaw ng nilagang baka or sabaw ng sinigang hanggang 5 baby spoons lang tapos ayaw na ulit. If you force him, he throws up. So lalong sayang yung konting nakain niya na sana.

Sabi ni pedia kung ayaw parin, ok lang daw milk. Just make sure I give him 48oz in 24hrs. She also recommended pediasure pero ayaw ni baby so nauwi kami sa Nestle counterpart which is Nutren junior.

Sabi naman nung isang mom na kilala ko na ganito rin experience before sa anak niya (who is now 12y/o) she started with broth. Bale sabaw lang, and then graduated to creamy-feel food then textured food. Basta sanayin lang daw ang bata na dapat matuto mag-intake sa spoon and not always from the bottle. I'm trying that technique now.

Wag ka pa masyado mag worry kung 11mos. Baby pa naman sya technically. Try Milupa Meal Time. Hirap lang talaga pag picky eater ang bata. :(

hi mommies!


i just want to seek for advice regarding kids na super hirap pakainin. baby ko kasi started eating nung 6mos sya, not super solid already pero inintroduce na namin sya with some solids like rice, potatoes, carrots and others na pwedeng i-mix with rice para maging meal sya for babies. we also gave him ceralac that time na nagustuhan naman niya at first. pero habang tumatagal at habang lumalaki sya nagiging maselan na sya sa food hanggang sa dumating yung time na ayaw niya na talaga kumain ng solids/meal. ngayon super pahirapan syang pakainin, siguro mga 3-5 na subo lang ayaw na. puro milk intakes lang sya, worried lang ako kasi baka makalakihan niya yun at hindi masanay kumain ng solids.


thanks in advance for the tips/advice!

ask ko lang sis, san mo sya pinapakain? or ano gamit mo pag pinapakain mo?

naalala ko kase may time na ang hirap pakainin ng baby ko. then napansin namin na mas kumakain sya pag naglalakad. bumabalik nalang sya sa amin pag magpapasubo na sya. pero sa mall, sanay naman sya kumain nang nakaupo. tingnan mo din baka hindi sya kumportable sa pwesto niya...

try mo din bumili ng spoon and fork na may design ng favorite character niya. pati plate and cup. baka mainteres sya..

Mommy try mo po sya magsubo sa sarili niya, phawak mo sa kanya yung food. Baka mas maeenjoy niya yung feeling na may control sya, like play. Pero alalay lang kayo.

@mommie ondie: natry na namin syang pakainin ng sabay samin sa table everytime we eat bfast, lunch and dinner. before ok sa kanya yun, nagpapasubo naman kaso nga lang ilang subo lang ayaw na niya. then we've tried din na pakainin sya ng separate, like if he plays hindi namin iniinterrupt habol lang kami sa kanya para subuan. kaso if he feels like ayaw niya na kumain di mo na talaga mapipilit kahit anong gawin mo. minsan nakikipaglaro nalang din ako para di niya mapansin na pinapakain namin sya pero ilang subo lang concentrated na sya sa paglalaro at deadma na ang food. sa mall naman, syempre kinukuha namin sya ng baby chair para di naman kami nagtatakbuhan kung san man kami kumakain. minsan nagpapasubo sya, minsan ayaw.


@yummie mummie: nasubukan ko narin po syang pakainin on his own. like ibibigay ko sa kanya yung spoon then maglalagay ako ng food sa plate niya. at times magkasundo naman kami, kumakain naman sya paunti-unti yun nga lang yung span of interest niya kasi with eating super ikli lang kaya after ng ilang subo paglalaruan nalang niya yung food niya sa plate. minsan nga pinapabayaan nalang din namin if feel nyang kamayin yung food kasi kinakain naman niya. kaso nga lang ang problem pag ganun, pag ayaw niya na yung food paglalaruan na niya with his bare hands.


nakaka-frustrate lang kasi may mga kakilala kaming kids of his age na ang gaganang kumain. hindi naman sa totally nirereject niya yung food pag sinusubuan sya, but most of the time kasi di talaga niya isusubo agad. parang inaamoy niya muna then pag feeling niya ok naman tsaka lang ibubuka yung bibig. may time naman na naibuka na niya yung bibig niya pero pag nalasahan niya na yung food at di niya type iluluwa naman niya. hay grabe, kala ko few months lang yung struggle namin with his eating habits. nakakatakot lang kasi baka masanay sya ng patikim-tikim lang. at his age, hindi naman kami pwede magdepend lang totally with his fomula milk. though, malaking tulong kasi halos yun lang ang food niya kaya di rin kami naghihinayang if 1week lang niya nacoconsume yung 1.6kg ng milk niya. we tried to ask the pedia na rin about it, binigyan lang din kami ng pampaganang vitamins. may mga bata daw talagang super picky at that age.

Hi sis...ganyan din ang daughter ko. Same with you at 6months unti unti iniintroduce na namin sya sa solid food pero napakakonti lang niya talaga kumain. And pag may sabaw lang yung kanin ang kinakain niya other than that di mo na sya mapapakain. Ganyan sya gang 1yr and 4months sya. Pero now na 1yr and 7months na sya magana na sya kumain pero she like to eat on her own..un may sarili syang plato makalat pero at least I see naman na nakakakain sya.
Sis wag ka mag alala normal lang sa baby na minsan ayaw talaga kumain kasi napansin ko factor din yung pag tubo ng ipin, minsan di na tayo aware na may tumutubo palang teeth si baby kaya minsan wala syang gana or ayaw niya talaga sumubo ng solid food kasi nga tinutubuan sya ng teeth. Napansin ko din kaya pala what she wants before is yung may sabaw lang na kanin is di pa sya marunong ngumuya because wala pa din syang teeth (bagang) that will help her to chew food. But now na complete na yung teeth niya meron na syang bagang I noticed na di na sya mahirap pakainin ng small bites ng meat...un nga lang nginunguya lang niya gang mawala yung lasa then iluluwa na niya.
Just have more patience sis...in time baby will learn to like solid food than milk.
Next time na problem naman natin when baby refuse to drink milk when they get a little more older.

i never thought that one day i'll be posting on this kind of thread.  :(  ok naman kumain ang baby ko for the last 14months. ok as in tama lang, hindi marami, hindi din konti. kaya tama lang din ang weight niya. not until this holiday season. ang una kong "theory" ay dahil maraming parties, maraming tao, bagong lugar kaya gusto lang niya palagi magplay at maglakad (dahil nga bagong environment).

but the holidays are over at ayaw pa din niya kumain. ang masama, kahit agahan, kahit tanghalian, ayaw.   :(  pero pag pinakain ng bread or biscuit, kakain naman siya. we might bring him to his pedia this weekend pag ayaw pa din.

Post by: Mommy France on January 11, 2011, 08:11:37 am
Hi sis.. most parents struggle with feeding kasi kids become very choosy at age 1. Lalo na pag alam na ng kid mo yung preference niya. Has he been eating cerelac since he started on solids?

Whenever someone asks here any feeding concern with their child, same lang palage ang answer ko. Be experimental / creative with the food choices. You dont have to give him just cerelec. Enhance his palette.  Get a copy of the food pyramid and start with that. You can mash veggies and then fruits. You can also give him crackers or breads. Wag puro sweet. Try din yung ibang taste like tangy (tomato-based foods) and salty (soups).

Always remember that you shouldn't let your toddler (kid) decide what's best for him in terms of feeding. You have to be firm, at least on this part kasi they really need to eat.

Also, the good thing about experimenting is that you also figure out kung ano yung mga gustong taste ng baby mo. Pag nagustuhan niya yung mga tomato based food then dun ka mag-experiment. Then kung gusto niya starchy, give him different kinds of it. If you start early with a good eating habit, madadala niya yun. Kaya pang mabago yan tutal 1 year old pa lang siya.

hi sis mamutintin, ang hirap hirap nga ng ganyan. My son naman is 1.8 months but mahina lang sa milk pero sa solid ok naman. Before ganyan din sya, his pedia asked to change his milk to pediasure, di kasi mabilis ang weight gain ni baby. Then never get tired of giving him solids. Introduce more and more solids or isabay mo na sa inyo baka gusto kasabay kayo pagkain. I let my son hold his food kahit makalat lang dun ko kasi napapansin ginaganahan sya.

Ano ba fave food niya sis? baka gusto niya yung ganung mga ganung tipo ng substitutes. Like my son ayaw niya ng malalagkit tulad ng mga kalabasa so yung tipong chewable ang gagawin ko or like ayaw ng breast part ng chicken.

Patience saka mix and match din hanggang mahuli mo dila ni baby :)

Dede lang sya pag tulog na.. pro kundi sya tulog di mo sya ngaun mapapadede.. natatakot kasi ako wala milk kasi sobrang baby pa niya para magsolid foods lang..

how old is your baby na ba, mommy? See if your baby has food preferences. Ang baby ko di din palakain dati pero he loves macaroni soup kaya every now and then, I cook that for him. Ngayon kahit anong soup (nilaga, tinola, sinigang) kinakain na niya with some rice. Also, Pediasure helped me a lot. Ito gatas niya when I stopped breastfeeding him at 15months. Nakakagana.

Variety is the key. You can experiment using the Food Pyramid on what your child should eat. This way matutunan mo yung mga klase ng food na gustong kainin ng baby mo.

Scheduling will also help. Kung every hour yung inum ng milk baka feeling busog pa siya. Also, ask your pedia, makakatulong ang vitamins para ma-boost kahit papano yung appetite niya.

Always discuss your concerns to your pedia. kasi siya talaga makakatulong sa iyo. :)

Hi, mommies! I'm getting worried about my baby, because lately..he doesn't want to eat. When we try to feed him, he would turn his head away and won't even open his mouth..but we don't force feed him.. to start with, at his age, he can't eat rice yet as is kelangan medyo i-blend pa..but he eats table food na talaga kaya lang un nga recently ayaw kumain. I'm thinking baka masakit ang gums niya..so for now, puro formula milk lang sya. Is that ok? How can i also wean him from blended or pureed food? Para kasi sya nacho-choke if not blended e..worst, he would spit it or vomit... Any advise?  Thanks!

marami talagang parents ang nahihirapan sa pagpapakain kay baby.....i have three daughters and one boy....lahat sila nahirapan akong pakainin....at first food nila okay lang pero habang tumatagal eh parang inaayawan agad nila ang food nila...pero halos lahat ng mga anak ko eh mahinang kumain until na mag high school yung three daughters ko...dun lang sila nagkakain ng marami dahil siguro sa mga activities sa school...but now i have a three year old boy....kala ko malakas ng kumain lalo pa't sanay talaga sya sa gulay at lahat mashed potato, carrots, banana, apple...pati mga juices niya eh puro extract from the fruit....pero nung mag 2 yrs old na sya nung matuto ng kumain ng mga iba't ibang food, eh inayawan na lahat ng gulay at di talaga sya kumakain ng rice, di niya talaga gusto kahit nung baby pa sya, sabi ng pedia ko okay lang as long as kumakain sya ng pasta/noodles or bread....basta may pamalit yung carbo niya....so favorite niya talaga oatmeal....pero now that he's three nagbago na naman ang hilig niya sa pagkain minsan kumakain sya ng rice na pero most of the ayaw niya talaga ng rice, fish and hot dog ang gusto...pero pag pork talaga na ang ulam di sya kumakain ever since....ayaw niya i-chew ang pork kahit malambot pa....mas madalas akong nagkakaproblem kung ano kakainin niya kasi dapat di uulitin yung food niya kasi nagsasawa agad....but every week may sopas ako kasi gusto niya talaga yung may  sabaw ngayon kaya all in na talaga ginagawa kong sopas, meron na syang hotdog, chicken, bacon, carrots, longanisang macao, cabbage at nag chop ako ng malunggay para di gaanong kita kung ano yun....good thing lahat ng anak ko gusto naman nila pag ganun ang food...most of the time dapat talagang mag experiment ng food at mas madalas may daya ang food natin di dapat nila kita yung mga gulay  para makain nila....

hi mommies, i'm reading this book 'child of mine, feeding with love and good sense'. It's a good book to read lalo na for toddler years na mahirap magpakain ng bata. I picked up the book precisely because i got worried about my baby's lack of appetite for solids.

The book basically says that babies -even newborns -know how much they need and want to eat, so it's up to them whether they eat or not. The role of the parents is to give them the proper food. During the toddler years (1-3), the role of the parents in feeding is the what, when and where while the role of the toddler is the whether and how much to eat. The book also says,our babies' bodies are their control. We can't make them fat or thin. It's up to them.

Of course, this appraoch may not be appropriate if your baby is undernourished or overweight and must consult a doctor and health professional regarding this issue.

I tried this approach and it has become easier for me and my hubby and our baby. Yes, sometimes our baby does not eat much or not eat at all but the important thing is we offer her healthy food during meal times and snack time. Sometimes, she eats lots that we are surprised. We don't force-feed our baby at all. And there is less stress on us and our child.

Mommy n :) exactly my views!

We don't force feed him, may times na marami kumain, may times na parang walang gana pero kumakain pa rin, like mga 2-3 subo and then ayaw na. Comfort ko lang is malakas sa milk, he always asks for milk after niya mag solids. Minsan sinubsubstitute ko na ng formula instead of BF.

Kastress kasi nung una na talagang parang binibilang ko yung kinakain niya, baka kasi nagugutom or what. Hehe

This is my problem also for my son who is turning 1 year old. Di siya mahilig kumain ng solids, pero like sis ainge88 thankful lang din ako kasi lakas niya magdede.
 
Kahit ano ipakain ko sa kanya pinipilit niya isuka. Pag mga 1 to 3 times na try ko siyang subuan at pag ayaw niya talaga di ko na pinipilit. Pansin ko mahilig anak ko sa mga matatamis gusto niya champorado saka yung Cerelac na Choco Joy yung flavor. Mahilig din siya sa mga fruit flavors ng Gerber.
 
Ayaw niya talaga mag-rice. Hindi ko na rin siya pinipilit as long as nakapag take siya ng milk. Nakaka 6 bottles siya ng milk everyday 6 ounces each. Ok naman yung katawan niya malusog pa rin.

yes malakas pa rin sa milk ang baby ko. I don't refuse her milk pag gusto niya kasi i know minimal lang yung solids na kinakain.

We just came from doc's appointment kanina and nagulat ako malaki ang weight gain niya. So mukhang ok ang approach na ginawa namin.

similar din yung problem ko sa inyo, hindi rin kumakain ng solid food anak ko, he's turning 3 next month pero never pa sya nka eat ng rice, pansit pa lang nkakain niya pero sobrang konti lang, dati lahat ng isubo na solid food sinusuka kasama ng milk, pero now hindi na masyado sumusuka, minsan gusto niya ng sabaw pero minsan lang yun, milk lang talaga sya, pero malakas naman sa gatas kasi yung 1.6 kl na promil 6 to 7 days lang niya. super hyper sya at maliksi kahit milk lang ang iniinom niya everyday.

sabi naman ng pedia niya pilitin lang daw, gutumin daw tpos bigyan ng rice, i tried that na pero yaw tlaga mag eat ng rice at ulam, hindi niya iopen mouth niya if susubuan mu sya ng food. gusto lang din niya yogurt milk and choco drink. yun nga lang hindi sya mataba pero hindi rin naman payat, tama lang tignan yung katawan niya. malakas naman sya, bihira sya sipunin or magkasakit, yung skin lang niya sensitive masyado, lagi my rushes.

hindi ko na nga alam kung anong gagawin sa kanya para lang kumain.

with regards to milk, you can change it as often as you want since your child is more than a year old.  our pedia gave us the prerogative to choose milk that is suited to our kids.  we tried, promil, enfagrow, lactum, etc.  now, we're sticking with nido fortified when our second child turned 4, like her elder sister.
 
my kids are also 'payatot', but the pedia said it's ok.  they've inherited their body built from me.  very slim since i was born.  as long as they're active, then i have nothing to worry. 
 
with regards to appetite, introduce food that would be attractive to your child.  gradually, introduce variety of foods.  start with yummy flavors for her.  even if the taste of the food is bland (walang lasa), try pouring a juice for her.  our eldest was fed with variety of fish until she turned 2, but it was often paired with fruits and vegetables. 
 
now, even if they're slim, we don't worry about being picky.  they eat what is being served on the table.

hi momi_gel!! i dont think you need to change her milk naman.. gnyan po kasi talaga ang 1 sa symptoms ng may PC.. my eldest had it before. super bgla na lang nawalan ng gana and bumagsak talga yung katawan. as you said nagstart pa lang naman kayo ng gamutan niya last week lang.. pag medyo ngkakaron ng effect sa kanya yung gamot eventually mpapansin mo babalik din yung gana nyan sa pagkain. kahit hndi sya tumaba ok lang un as long as hndi ngkakasakit and active pa din like what mommy mariann said. suggestion ko lang din sanayin mo sya sa fruits as her snacks or finger foods. fresh fruit juice would also be good. dont wori mommy observe mo lang muna and tuloy mo lang yung pag try mo ng pagbigay sa kanya ng mga food. kung ayaw niya ngaun try it the next few weeks baka kainin na niya. hope this helps mommy.. kasi ako noon super depressed pa ko nung nag positive ang baby ko, tagal bago ko ntanggap. until now may konting "ouch" pa din pag naalala ko. now, super healthy na si baby ko. he's 2.5 y/o. payat pa din but not like what he looks like nung may PC pa sya, iba kasi talga ang pagka payat ng may PC eh. siksik daw kasi ang anak ko. chill mommy! =)

This was my problem too with my youngest months ago..after breastfeeding nag start na siya mag drink ng milk sa glass but other than that, cookies nalang or anything na type niya lang kainan and it started to bother me kasi he's not gaining weight as in maagan siya for 2 1/2 year old child.

I asked his pedia if I can give my son Appebon, kasi sa Nutroplex parang walang effect sa kanya. Okay naman kay pedia so I started giving my baby this. Appetite stimulant siya, kaya naman ngayon kami na umaawat sa pagkain niya kasi big na tummy niya kain pa rin siya. Parang gas niya yong food sa likot niya pati!  ;D You know how toddlers are. Funny kasi fav na niya tong Appebon, minsan nakakalimutan ko siya na nagsasabi sa akin "mins" (vitamins)  ;D

I'm happy kasi nag gain na siya ng weight kita ko sa arms niya, sa legs, sa dibdib,..petite lang kasi tong bunso ko kaya pagpumapayat siya mukha siyang kawawa talaga.

Eh parang hindi na siya tumataba sa BF kaso kahit anong pilit ko ng formula ayaw. Tapos isa or dalawang subo ayaw na. Ang dami na nagsabi na payat daw siya :( yun pa naman pinaka ayaw ko na naririnig, payat. Ngayon naman gumaling na siya, balik na siya, sa appetite niya kaso bakit payat pa rin siyaaaa! :( paano ba patabain ang babies? Pwede na ba ang appebon sa 1yr 3mos?

let us help one another and share some ideas to other moms who are worrying about their child being picky eaters.

My son become a little picky/fussy eater when he turned one. That of course worried me a lot. He just want milk and milk alone. I have talked to another mom and she told that his son too was like that. I have read a lot of articles just to feel a little good.

Yes, being picky/fussy eater is just normal to growing kids especially toddlers so that give a little peace of mind. Through patience, after just a month my son is back to normal. he would eat almost anything.

All i can say is we should always have patience in dealing with our kids and always offer a variety of healthy foods.

How about you mom? are your child a picky eater?

Why toddlers are picky. Being a picky eater is part of what it means to be a toddler. We have since learned that there are developmental reasons why kids between one and three years of age peck and poke at their food. After a year of rapid growth (the average one-year-old has tripled her birth weight), toddlers gain weight more slowly. So, of course, they need less food. The fact that these little ones are always on the go also affects their eating patterns. They don't sit still for anything, even food. Snacking their way through the day is more compatible with these busy explorers' lifestyle than sitting down to a full-fledged feast.

Hi mga mommies!
 Pa-help naman, ngayon ko lang kase naexperience ito sa kid ko eh he is 2 and a half years old.Lately ayaw nyang kumain ng rice...for 3 days na :( nagulat nga kami ng yaya kase before naman eh kumakain sya breakfast,lunch and dinner.But yon nga..biglang ayaw na niya kahit anong pilit,puro ulam lang ang kinakain (fried fish, grilled liempo etc..but ayaw ng may sabaw) Kahapon nagluto ako ng spaghetti hoping na kakain sya kase fave niya yon eh..pro noodles lang ang kinain ayaw ng may sauce :(
Malakas naman syang mag-milk and kumain ng cookies...yon lang prob ko biglang nawalan ng gana sa rice and ulam na mas importante di ba? Binilhan ko din ng propan syrup kahapon,hinde naman mahirap painumin..hays sana bumalik na ang gana niya.

Hi Mommies,

Bago lang ako dito sa SP. Hingi sana ako ng mga suggestions nio para mapakain ng solid foods yung baby ko. She's turning 3 years old this may pero halos umaasa lang siya sa milk. Dati gain yung milk niya, then last december lang naconfined sya sa pagsusuka dahil nadiagnosed siya na meron lactose intolerance. So my pedia suggested na ilipat sa enfagrow lactose free. Nasisira na yung teeth niya sa harapan dahil sa dede. ayaw niya kasi kumain ng solid foods, more on nuggets, fruits like banana and grapes. Ang hirap nyang pakainin lalo pag di niya kilala yung food. Sabi ng pedia ko, gusto nyang tangalin yung milk para kumain siya ng solid foods pero baka lalo mangayayat yung baby ko. help mga mommies. Thans!!

ang baby ko naman ay hindi masyado mahirap pakainin though may mga times na kelangan pilitin o bolahin. ang ginagawa ko (turning 2 pa lang siya) hinahayaan ko lang maglaro etc. pag nagutom siya binibigyan ko kaagad ng solid food pag ayaw tinitiis ko muna pero most of the time naman eh kinakain niya mahirap kasi pag nabusog sa milk hindi na kakain ng solid.

tiisin mo ng konti sis. pag binigyan mo ng solid food at ayaw niya wag mo agad bigyan ng milk. kasi ang mga bata naman pag nagutom at walang ibang nakahain eh kakainin din nila kung ano meron kasi wala silang choice.

isa pa nga pala. minsan kasi sa pag prepare ng food yan. ang bata gusto nila colorful or something na magiging interesting sa paningin nila like yung plate etc. =)

Hello everyone!

I'm really in need of all your help. I have a son and he just turned 5 last december. His mom is abroad and so I'm the only one taking care of him. He has been a very picky eater. He only eats mashed potato, chocolate cereals, biscuits and cookies. He drinks Pediasure and sometimes dede pa sya.

Ngayon I am really worried. He's already 5 and I don't know how to handle this. I've tried appetite stimulants before but it never worked.

Pls! I need any thoughts u can share. Thanks!

try muna ang changing milk sis, i suggest by atleast 2 small boxes lang muna tapos timpla ka ng 4oz or 6oz, bigay mo sa kanya, every 4hours iba iba ang bigay and check asan ang gustong gusto niya inumin yon ang gamitin mo as milk niya.

ganyang ganyan din ang daughter ko before, naka heraclene din pero after 2months of heraclene same pa din, sabi ng pedia ko na pedia din ng daughter ko (yes, dr.uy is almost 70yrs old nha) matanda na ang pedia ko...excuse me hehe  after 3months up pa umiipek ang heraclene, something about stimulation factor etc. and absorption sa brain ... yong halak naman mommy is dont forget na pa burp mo talaga si baby, or if magpapa dede ka slightly higher ang sa ulunan niya, it helps din to soothe her if kausapin mo sya while nagpapadede ka, talk to her how is your day para ma stimulate mo sya.

now my daughter na picky eater pa man din, hindi mataba pero mabigat talaga sya,very bright and hyper active pero kumakain na talaga sya at milk pa din, no need na ng puersahin. yon lang, dinadala ko sya sa grocery talaga para sya papiliin ko, example chicken, sasabihin niya "luto ka ng chicken ma!" so paguwi namin luto ako, and kasama sya sa kitchen sya yong tagalagay ng krispy fry sa chicken ako ang taga lagay sa mantika. super laki ng kain niya after maluto, pagluto na nga ang isang piece is start na syang sumosubo ng rice. kaya madami na din na kakain without her knowing.

I don't mind my son eating being a bit picky on the food he eats. Like adults din naman may gusto may ayaw. What i love is that he eats veggies no trouble with that. :) Saluyot, malunggay, sitaw and kalabasa are his favorties.

Experiment lang talaga on food pati ang bata ngbabago ng gusto. What my son hated before he eats now ganun talaga trial and error until you find what he wants. Kailangan maging creative tayo mgprepare ng pagkain, pwede din sila iinvolve sa kitchen para maging interested sila sa pagkain. Like my son he helps me in making fish fillet siya ang nagbbread ng fillet. Pati pagmimix ng scrambled eggs siya na pinapagawa ko. Try niyo mga mommies :)

It's normal for kids to like and then not like a certain food. What's important is that an early age they are exposed to as much healthy food as possible: whole grains, milk, fruits, veggies, etc.

But yun nga, sometimes kids that used to love broccoli may not do so after a few months and that's okay.

To answer the question, you may try serving several different food to your child (2-3) and make sure that he likes at least one of the foods there so you won't fight na hindi siya kumakain. The other food types are for him to try.

Do the rule na he has to at least try the food and if he doesn't like it okay lang.

Also, avoid preparing other food just so he can eat, be sure na he understands what is on the table is what he can eat lang.

At least that's how one mom did to win against her picky eater, read more here: http://greeneggsandmoms.com/winning-battle-against-picky-eaters.html (http://greeneggsandmoms.com/winning-battle-against-picky-eaters.html)

my daughter is also a picky eater. she's turning three this saturday, and only eats fish, tofu, rice, pansit, and pasta (without sauce ha). she also eats bread and soup. pero ayaw niya ng veggies. :( she loves fruits though and still regularly takes her milk. At her age, she's still at 14 kilos. I'm actually a bit worried, kasi nga parang she's magaan for her age, so I asked the pedia during her last check up, and she said na within normal range naman. haaay I wonder how I can get her to eat more. malakas naman kumain, pero hindi consistently malakas ang appetite.

since her poor appetite, an indication of PTB, was not solved by appetite enhacers, then it could be primary complex nga.

hi there, talaga? my baby is not eating much, and super  bagal ng weight gain niya?

do u think i can ask my baby about this? ayaw kc cia bigyan ng appetite enhancer ng pedia niya :(

I think the number one rule to deal with picky eaters is to surround them with healthy food. But don't just go and make the change immediately, do it slowly. :)

Also you can implement the following researched-based methods to get kids to eat more fruits and veggies:

- have several colorful food on a single plate
- use optical illusion to make servings sizes smaller than they are. smaller serving sizes don't intimidate the kiddos
- serve water with veggies
- smile while YOU eat veggies

This is a long post :) HIrap din pakainin yung anak ko until recently.  I tried a lot of things before.  Some that worked with other toddlers did not work with my son so trial and error talga. Here is what Im doing now:

1) my son asks for milk as soon as he wakes up (anytime between 6am to 8am). ideally real food before milk but iyak and struggle lang to do this. so what i do is give him milk around 4 to 5oz lang and after 2 hours he has space na sa tummy to eat real food.

2) kung ano man yung pagkain namin, i offer it to him. He will refuse first but il negotiate to try one bite. Pag ayaw, isang pilit pa. Im stricter with the first bite. And when he takes that one bite, and ayaw na ng second bite and he looks ready to throw up, i dont pursue it. I will say na "yehey! see, one bite lang." So he knows I mean business but also eating should not be a chore. 

3) Meal times 3x a day with two snacks in between.  Im not so strict sa time. Depende kasi sa sleeping time, milk intake and other factors.

4) When he doesnt like to eat bec he is playing, il tell him that we will hide his toys. 

5) I let him have cookies, cake, biscuits, chocolates,chips, iced tea (no softdrinks), etc in moderation.  Ang rule is he should eat something healthy also.  Dati kasi, ayoko. Eh ganun din, crying episodes tapos lalabas na kontra ako sa lahat ng gusto niya.  Mas nagwork pa ngayon at marami sya nakakain if i let him have some "unhealthy" food from time to time. 

Be ready lang to adjust. it will not be smooth sailing all the time. Also If he is sick, hindi ko pinipilit gaano.  I want him to recover eh kung iiyak pa ng iiyak, wawa naman.  And he will just throw up what he eats.

Good day sis!

Parang ganyan din ang baby ko. He is 2 yrs old now. Ayaw niya talaga kumain. Puro milk ang gusto niya. Dede siya ng dede. Minsan kapag gusto niya kumain junkfoods ang gusto niya. Nakakalungkot kasi I cant do anything about it. Kahit mag prepare ako ng food para sa kanya, ayaw talaga niya kainin. Please help naman mga sis!  :)

My solution for this is distraction. Super mapili din before sa food ang daughter ko she would only eat rice na may sabaw minsan ayaw pa. Hindi rin siya malakas mag milk. Nakaka 12oz lang siya of Pediasure complete a day pero she eats naman 3x a day yung full meal and 2x a day merienda..pero sa tingin ko hindi pa rin enough yung puro rice lang at konting ulam. Mag uulam lang siya pag mongo or fish fillet ang ihahain. Although malaki na improvement niya ngayon kesa before (sobrang payat niya) thanks to Pediasure complete and Restor Big. Pero feeling ko kulang pa din yung nakukuhang nutrients ng katawan niya.

Try niyo siya i-distract kapag kumakain. Kapag nag stop na daughter ko sa pagsubo hahayaan namin siya mag play while eating para lang kumain (ayaw talaga namin to but we're desperate na mag gain siya ng weight). Sometimes mas marami siyang nakakain kapag nasa harap niya iPad (again ayaw din naman namin ito pero kapag wala pa siya nakakain wala rin kami choice) pero hindi ito madalas mangyari. Sometimes sinasabayan niya si talking tom na uminom ng milk kaya minsan mabilis nauubos milk niya :)

Sometimes i also point things sa ceiling or sa wall tapos biglang susubuan ko siya kapag distracted na hindi na niya napapansin hanggang sa maubos na niya yung nasa plate niya :)

Iba iba din mood ng baby ko. Minsan siya na magsusubo mag isa ng food niya minsan ayaw.

Try niyo different food tapos ulit ulitin niyo lang i'm sure may magugustuhan naman si baby sa dami ng healthy food na available ngayon. Try niyo din different techniques.

Sabi rin pala ng pedia sa amin. Hindi dapat ang baby mag adjust sa time ng pagkain natin.. Dapat tayo ang mag aadjust sa kanila. Possible kasi na yung time ng dinner natin for example is 7pm tapos 7pm din pakakainin si baby eh baka by that time wala na siya sa mood kumain.. Possible na 6pm ang best time na pakainin siya so nasa timing din mga mommies. :) Wag natin i-assume na kung anong oras ang pagkain natin ng breakfast lunch at dinner eh yun din ang time na nagugutom sila or gusto nila ng food. :)

Good luck!

At home, we feed my son when he is watching cartoons.  Nagkataon na meal time yung fave cartoons niya so we take of advantage of it.   Yes, bad habit nga siguro and there are some articles that discourage this practice but it works for us. Maspinili namin eto keysa hindi sya kumain.  But when we eat / dine out whether at a fancy resto or a fastfood joint, wala syang toy or other distraction pero kumakain naman.   If maagapan nyo, I wont encourage this practice (watching tv and eating).  Better pa rin to eat at the dining table.

Dati rin hirap syang pakainin, it took us a few months to improve on this. Trial and error din. Kahit anong ulam namin, we try to feed it to him. Now he can eat afritada, adobo, sinigang, tinola, sweet and sour fish, lumpia, siomai, etc.  Yung vegetables, sinasama ko sa meat and rice para hindi niya gano malasahan. Even fresh lettuce, sinasama ko kahit fried chicken or hotdog ang ulam.  And pag ayaw talga nyang kumain or hindi maubos ang food, hinahayaan namin. Pilitin once or twice but if talgang ayaw, then stop eating na. This way, hindi sya traumatized sa pagkain.   We also try to vary the food/ulam that we offer in a day. Pedeng ulam niya yesterday lunch, maging ulam niya for dinner today. But not same ulam for lunch and dinner that day.  And then sometimes, we have pancakes, pandesal or cereals for breakfast para hindi magsawa sa rice.

He can finish more than 1/2 cup of rice during mealtimes.  And he likes fruits.  Sometimes he asks for orange, grapes, mango. But I also let him eat chips, chocolates, cakes, donuts, etc. for snacks but not on a daily basis. Just enough para hindi sya magsawa sa good food.   Bihira na rin syang magmilk ngayon so mas magana sa solids.

Post by: momi95 on March 14, 2014, 11:13:41 pm
Hi mommy! Una, ano ang gusto o nakakain niya. Kung me specific na food siya na gusto, dun ka magsimula gumawa ng variations at pandaraya para makain niya  yung ibang food. Pwede ka rin mag-puree ng iba't ibang pagkain para na-enjoy niya.  Minsan, ang ayaw nila e yung nakikita nila, at hindi yung lasa. Pwede mo din gawan ng mga shapes and me color mula sa ibnag pagkain para maenjoy nila.  Wag mo din i-force feed para hindi lalong ma-trauma....  :)

My daughter was really a  picky eater before... All she really wants is her milk and we did everything to make her eat....but always ends up with her milk.kasi iniiyakan na niya.  til  she turned 2 years old.. and she really dont want to take any vitamins syrup... till I tried the Scotts Chewable Vitamins... She really love it.. and surprsingly... parati na syang tumatambay sa ref namin and palaging gutom...ubos niya na palagi yung sineserve naming rice and ulam sa kanya.... and  kakain lang ng rice..hanap na naman ng food sa ref.. from time to time,she always looking for food.. so we always make sure na may food sa ref . kaya ang problema namin ngayon, plgi naman nakabukas yung hahaha... and her weight really increased... hindi sya matabang mataba like other kids..but you know na healthy sya kasi pag kinarga mo sya sobrang bigat..and actually malapit ko na syang di mabuhat.. healthy,shiny hair, rosy fluffy cheeks.. ambilis rin ng growth niya..pero yung growth niya i think sa milk niya yun kasi maliit kami pareho ni hubby pero obvious na malaking babae sya. thank god my chewable vitamins :) :) :) cgro try nalang namin magdagdag ng syrup pag pwede na sya pilitin painumin ng other vitamins..cgro around 4? as of now.. Scotts lessen my worries :)

You should try two things from my opinion,

First, keep changing in food types you offer him
Second, involve him into fun activities that may take from his mental energy and makes him more hungry

Good Luck

Hello mommy Judie. If napa-check up mo na si baby and ok naman sya. I think, wala ka dapat ipag-worry kasi yung niece ko ganyan din. Dumaan din sya sa stage na yan. As in no rice, milk lang ng milk. Observed mo pa din. If several months na ganyan pa din, pa-check mo ulit. yung niece ko, umabot ng 4 months ganyan. Then paunti-unti sya bumalik sa pagkain.

Hi momshies,

My 3yo is a picky eater since she turned 1..
She only eats full meal kapag fried fish or sinigang ang ulam.
She doesn't like veggies na but sometimes we can trick her kapag mashed sayote mixed sa rice or we hide the veggies under the rice..  ;D
She likes fries and chicken nuggets too, which I know, are junk food but she's good with fruits.

Kayo mommies?
How do you get your picky eaters to eat?
Can you also share some easy full meal or snack recipes for your little ones?

Thanks in advance!

my 2.5yrs kid is a picky eater too. she likes eating egg, sweets and just milk. sometimes napapakain namin sya but 5 subo lang then we're done. I asked our pedia about it and he suggested as long as umiinom naman ng milk and may vitamins, okay lang daw. TRY AND TRY AND SUCCEED daw.

I was really worried pero knowing there are other parents experiencing this, I know I am not alone. Kaya natin to!  ;)
