Nanny 911: Getting Baby to Eat at Mealtimes
Make sure your son is on a good schedule so he is not too tired when it comes to mealtime, and he is not already full from juice, milk or a snack. Make transitions smooth, allow plenty of time for cleanup, and make it a game or sing a song. Little ones this age respond well to songs and games—it should be fun!

Don't start getting into food battles or it will become an issue!
