Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

This might be a long shot, but maybe he has food allergies?  Not all food allergies end up in anaphylaxis.  They can be extremely uncomfortable to painful though, which is never a fun thing to associate with food.Other possibilities could be oral-motor issues, sensory issues, or simply asserting independence.  I'd definitely bring up these concerns with your son's pediatrician soon, and hopefully you and your son can get things situated soon.Good luck!
if you are that concerned, then you need to contact his doc.
