Q.

Fussy eater

My son (2 and half) has been a very fussy eater since a baby, even now. He won' t eat more than two bites in the evening. He will eat breakfast but now lately he started skipping that too. He is healthy, picking up weight he is not skinny but still ware' s smaller clothing. Should I worry that is not getting all the nutitions in. Is it safe to give him Mina-mino? Or what can I give him to boost his nutrution intake?

Children of this age very often go through a stage when they do not eat at all well. As long as he appears healthy and happy there is nothing to worry about, he will start eating again without the use of any appetite stimulants.
