    Default Developing fussy habits?

    Hi guys,

    DS1 is 4.5 and will go to school this year. He hasn't been to care before or in that sort of environment and I'm worried he's starting to get fussy with eating and won't eat at school? He's a really good boy and we've never had any issues with his eating habits but when I was a kid my dad says I used to refuse to eat because I was mad at him for leaving him there so I hope he doesn't do that to me =/ He's not that fussy yet but he's just been a bit more reluctant to eat and wants to know what's in everything before he eats it.

    Has anyone had similar issues where their kid has stopped eating at school or am I stressing too much?

    Thanks,
    Sophie =)

    Maybe getting him to help pack his lunch box will help so he knows what is in there.

    I think being surrounded by other children eating will encourage him. They don't want to be left out, iykwim?

    I hope your ds settles in quickly and enjoys school

    Good idea! Thanks =)

    We have talked a bit about him starting school and he has said he's a bit scared =( but his auntie (my half sister) is starting this year as well and her big sister is 6 and really loves school, so he wants it to be fun "like for Charlie". So at least he's positive about it?

    Default Developing fussy habits?

    Well my is a real fussy eater, so she sometimes she used to help pack, other times she'd look forward to a 'surprise' lunch, I'd cut her sandwich with cookie cutter so there would be different shapes, works with cheese too.

    I wouldn't stress though I think all kids at some point find it daunting, as they don't really know what to expect, and really who doesn't find change a little daunting!
