I have just made it out of the black hole of not eating! My son got a virus about a month ago and developed mouth ulcers which caused him to stopped eating. At first I tried everything to get him to eat something, ANYTHING! Nothing worked so for that week he literally ate nothing. The next week he was a bit better and his ulcers started to clear up so I managed to get him to drink smoothies. I put in fruit and Icecream to give him some calories. The next week (week 3) he was better but still refused to eat any veggies or meat. I was beginning to thinking he was going to live on sandwiches forever. Just when I was at my lowest he ate some chicken and veggies. I wanted to jump and down but I kept my poker face on and acted like it was no big deal. He has finally started to eat again. So for all the other mums out there going through the same thing keep strong and keep trying.
