Picky eating can be normal for toddlers. It's normal for them to be hooked on particular foods for a few weeks and then out of thin air they change to another item for a few weeks. It's possible they only eat a big breakfast and not have an appetite for lunch or vice versa. Don't stress out about these fluctuations. Have healthy food choices for them during this time that they can choose from. Finger foods may be ideal but they also can be dangerous (causing choking) for picky eaters.

If your child has other eating issues, like not eating at all, then contact your pediatric physician immediately.
