I need suggestions on what to feed him. I’m super pleased with his appetite and growth, and I am anxious to encourage him by giving him a good variety of good tasting wholesome foods. But I don’t know where to start!
His diet currently consists of a lot of Yogurt (preferably non-sugar), applesauce, soft sandwiches, mashed up food… His fall back is the formula (peptimin jr., in a sippy cup), which I’m not very thrilled about (sugar and cow’s milk). Although it is still partially broken down for easier digestion, and is “packed full of calories & vitamins”.
Tyson has not had as much practice with eating by mouth as a typical 16 mo. old, and he sometimes has issues with gagging and vomiting although he has much improved there.
Our long term goal for Tyson is to help him learn to eat all that his body requires by mouth and eventually pull out the G-tube completely.
Thank you for your help in the past. It has made a big difference in Tyson's health thus far.
