In this episode, a parent shares how her toddler is refusing to eat breakfast many days. She describes how her son is choosing what he is served for breakfast every morning, but that he is very inconsistent with the amount that he eats. When he refuses to eat what is served even after asking for it, she is unsure whether to offer her toddler other items or simply let him wait until the next feeding opportunity as she worries that he will be hungry before snack. She has been giving him other options to try to get him to eat, but she describes how the family is getting frustrated at this constant pattern and waste of food. She is at her wits end and is looking for some guidance on how she should address this.
