Dont worry as yet if your son is a fussy eater now. It will change later. I have had the same problem with my daughter until 3 years of age. Unless your son is not gaining weight, seems tired all the time and falls ill very often, then you need not really worry as he is getting the little bit of food his body needs to keep him going. If at all there are concerns about his health, please check with the doctor with regards to his diet. Pediasure helped my daughter with her appetite, weight and immunity. You could try giving pediasure to your son as it provides with some extra calories.
