Hi It could be food fussines.
Next Steps
Make mealtimes happy, regular and social occasions. Try not to worry about spilled drinks or food on the floor. Start small. For example, start by asking your child to lick a piece of food, and work up to trying a mouthful. And praise your child for these small attempts. Never force your child to try a food. He’ll have lots of other opportunities to try new foods. If your child is fussing about food, ignore it as much as you can. Giving fussy eating lots of attention can sometimes encourage children to keep behaving this way. Make healthy foods fun – for example, cut sandwiches into interesting shapes, or let your child help prepare a salad or whisk eggs for an omelette. Turn the TV off so your family members can talk to each other instead. Set a time limit of about 20 minutes for meals. Anything that goes on too long isn’t fun. If your child hasn’t eaten the food in this time, take it away and don’t offer your child more food until the next planned meal or snack time.
