I have a 4 year old son who does not want to eat healthy food at all. The only foods he gets in is baloney sandwich, peanut butter sandwich, fried chips, vienna's, some fruits, wheatbix for breakfast and sweeet stuff. I am concerned about his health, and need advise on how to get him to eat meat, veggies and so on. I never use to have this problem when he was a baby, it all started when he was a year and few months. He is also someone who loves rooibos tea (black). I need help please. I am so concerned about his health and diet. Many people tells me it just a phase, but a phase can't last this long.

I have a serious problem with my 4 year old son, he doesn't like food at all, he wants to eat noodles in the morning and night, he doesn't even finish a packet of it, he gets full half way, starts complaining about his stomach is full & sore..
He drinks sugar water at night & he makes up crying for it in the middle of the night,after playing with friends, he comes looking for his water...
He prefer youghurt, noodle ,sugar water only, he doesn't like veg,he cries wen I try giving it to him...
He never eats porridge, he acts like his about to vomit when you feed it to him...please help me, I thought he will get better at this age but nothing changes ..
