How do I encourage Tigger to eat?

May 26, 2012

Since getting the chicken pox in February Tigger has been ill on and off ever since. Due to this his weight gain as been slow and as the health visitor put it ‘unacceptable‘. Now I realise that a 0.20kg weight gain in three months is less than ideal but really did she really have to put it so blunt? It is not my fault, I have not been starving my children. With each illness he loses his appetite and it take so long for him to regain it again.

Currently he is refusing any meals, I have tried his usual food, finger foods, the same foods we have but no he is just not interested and smacks your hand away when you try to offer food. So he is surviving off additional milk feeds and snacks… and when I say snacks I mean, toast, raisins and breadsticks.

How do I get him to eat more?

He is due to be weighed again on Thursday and I’m worried that he will have not put on an acceptable amount of weight.

Any help, suggestions, ideas welcomed…
