How can I make my son eat food?

Q: How can I make my 18 month old son to eat food? He does not eat hot meals and doesn't really eat much during the day. He seems to live off a few biscuits and two 9oz bottles of milk a day. I have tried cutting the biscuits out and not letting him eat any snacks in between meal times but he still refuses to eat anything. Please advise.

A:Your 18 month old should eat the same food as you cook for yourself. Encourage him to feed himself. Offer 3 meals a day. Stop bottle-feeding. You can give the same amount of milk in a glass. Do not worry if he does not eat. When he is hungry he will eat. And please do not substitute milk for food.
