27mo DS has always been a fussy eater, he was improving, but now 2yo molars and a recent cold have sent his eating downhill again! He's back to waking several times overnight asking for a bottle as he is just not eating enough through the day.
The only meat he eats is some bacon hidden in zucchini slice or maybe once a month he will eat some roast chicken breast. The zucchini slice is also the only egg he eats but he won't eat that more than once a week.
He likes bread with vegemite, easy cheese or peanut butter (no other nut butters), plain pasta, tasty cheese, yogurt, porridge, nutriti grain and some crackers. He eats some veggies and fruit including raw carrot and peeled cucumber. So I'm not as worried about fruit/veg as I am about protein and minerals. At daycare he is fussy too but now eats their lentil soup and chickpea pancakes, they always have a vegetarian option and he refuses meat there too.
He loves milk but will not drink a smoothie or milo. The only "mixed together" foods he eats are the zucchini slice (which I also hide mushroom and caps in), pumpkin soup and sometimes risotto. Making it really hard to "hide" things in his food. I also had to drop wholegrain bread/cereal as he was having 6-10 poos a day.
I'm wondering if he is getting enough of everything nutrition wise. I put vita-sprinkles on his toast but not much else.
I'm just so over broken sleep, especially working full time, and I'm sure his eating is the issue now. So I'm not sure if I need to look into supplementing his diet and, if so, what specialist I would need to see for advice. Has anyone seen someone to help with this and were supplements the go, or just persisting with improving eating? Thanks in advance!
