Tips on feeding a picky 2-year-old?

My two-year-old does not want to eat anything that’s food. Junk food, yes gladly, juice, water, milk..but not food. I have to repeatedly tell my two-year-old to take bites, and when she finally does, she’ll chew the food but won’t swallow it. She’ll just keep it in her mouth until it makes her gag, and she has to spit it out. I have told her if she’s not gonna eat her food, she’s not gonna get anything else besides water.

Now he won’t eat anything except meat. I’ve tried sneaking veggies in his food, he just spits out his food and separates the veggies or sides out. The only other exception is grilled cheese sandwiches he will eat. I’ve never encountered this with any of my kids.

My 2-year-old doesn’t like eating meat: Advice?

Hello ladies! So my son is two and I am having SO much trouble getting him to eat meats, at first I thought he was a picky eater but it’s gotten to the point where he is a little bit anemic, and his face is getting white spots. He eats everything else pastas, juice crackers everything else but vegetables and meats. He starts crying as soon as he sees them. I would really love some tips on what to do to get him to eat more and get more iron!
