Your son is probaly not eating because the milk is enough to fill him up.He cannot only drink milk now as he may well develop an iron deficiency.Always offer your twins their food before their milk. Try and find those foods which the seem to like. Sometimes children of this age still insist on soft well mashed food. Give both children a good probiotic such as Probiflora junior daily to boost their immunity and also try Scotts Emulsion which often helps to increase their appetite.
