What do you feed a growing boy who can't chew? I am at a lost, and I feel that his rejection to food lately is because he is bored! Yesterday I went against the diet and fed him a scrambled egg. Actually, I had made it for Miss Poo but when she refused it and he wouldn't eat his pureed green beans, I gave it a try. He loved it! He was very happy mushing it around in his mouth! And nothing bad happened, he seemed fine the rest of the day and slept well. So what else do I give him? I have to admit, his diet is a lot of baby food, because... well... its just a lot easier. Yes, i am lazy, but baby food covers the main ingredients of his diet - vegetables, meat and fruit. We add some oil for fat and calorie intake, but its hard.
What do people feed older children that cannot chew? Should I reintroduce these foods one at a time and watch for reactions? We originally took him off of everything and his reflux went away and he was a much happier child. I am so afraid of going back there! Soon he will be going to school, and I can't really send him there with baby food! The whole point is to move him forward!! Urghghghghghghhhh
