Patient : Hi, i am a mother of two children a two year old girl and five year old boy. My concern is regaurding my son, from 5weeks old he has not fed well and almost every feed he would refuse but as he got closer to 1 year old he would eat one meal per day and the odd snacks. I have the problem with him now where he will not eat anything new but it is now to the point where he even begins to refuse the things he loves. We were advised to starve him as he would eventually become hungry but he went to bed after having only a small bowl of cereal 11 hours before and when he got up the following day the same happened again. We have tried everything we can think of and everything we have been advised but are now at a loss as he seems to be afraid of every food.
