His weight is between the 75-50th percentile and his height is above the 95th percentile which indicates his weight is normal for this age and height above normal. At this age some children are too busy exploring the world that they do not want to eat. It is important you relax at meals. You do not want mealtimes to be a battle of the wits between your child and you. Remember meals need to be joyous for you and him. Do not force a child to eat and give them the foods they like. Slowly introduce food and new food, and if he does not want it, do not make a fuss over it. Let it go and enjoy the meal.
