Not eating veggies!!!

Postby Iloverex » Sun Feb 10, 2019 7:42 pm

I have tried EVERYTHING under the sun, and my almost 2 1/2 year old just will not eat veggies. Over the years, the most i've gotten from him is nibbling a bit at some arugala, some blueberries, maybe apples on occasion, but over all, he's extremely stubborn about it. He's never really just "gone to town" on a nice hearty salad. To be honest he's not eating at all at the moment. Last year after brumation, he ran around like a lunatic all day, with no interest in food for a bit, but eventually started eating with a ravenous appetite. He did the same this year, with the running around, but it's been a while now
(Wish i'd paid closer attention to the date) and still no eating. Just got a fecal done, and he's clean, so it can't be parasites. Not too too worried about the food, figure he'll eat when he's hungry, but i do get concerned that no food means no dusting with calcium/ multi- vitamin. He is drinking plenty of water though. Ideas? Thoughts?

I don't know that there's much else to do aside from making a bunch of food available for him. Darwin is still going through the crazy after brumation phase and not eating much too. It has been over a month now. I just keep offering veges every day and roaches once a week or so per his normal routine.
