Tot Sauce: Hunger Strike

by Amy Nance

Guys! Have you heard about the new toddler diet craze that's sweeping the nation? It's the Milk Fast! It's really easy to do. If you're a toddler, you simply refuse all solid foods, including your normally most favorite foods like banana and those gross little sausages in the jar, and only drink milk (and sometimes water).

Oh wait. That's just my kid? Huh. Perhaps he decided to give up eating for Lent, unbeknownst to me. Either way, I've been a very worried momma. I keep telling myself that if he was hungry, he would eat. But then that guilty feeling that I'm somehow starving my child creeps in, even though I've offered him everything under the sun.

Does this ever happen to you? What do you do, if anything, to encourage your child to eat?
