HI there,
Its hard i know,but try to make his meal time special.
Not to other children, but to him. nMy mother instead of having formula at school she would wait and give it to me at home.
You can use rewards that way, and believe it or not it would work.
Let him choose the type of luch to take.(obviously) under your discretion. nJust don’t let him know that. nCarrots and Italian dip, nApples and dairy free dip. nAlso a good one Sorbet. nWay lower in phe than ice cream,but he doesn’t know the difference. nAdd in a speacial treat just from mom! nWith an I LOVE YOU!
You’ll be amazed on his reaction. nJust let him get involved in his food choices,but guide him gentley.
I hope i helped, nTracie
