blessing or a problem?

My son is a picky eater. It is so bad that he starves himself when I give him food he does not like. He does not ask for milk either since he knows I will not give it to him unless he eats. It is crazy because his father tells me his son needs to eat because he is skinny. It is true, he is skinny and is all legs. But what can I do? I have tried everything I know but nothing works. Some older moms told me it is normal, that he will outgrow this phase. But when? I sure hope they are right. I want him to grow up healthy. Although there is one thing I don't have to worry about him if he keeps on doing this even when he is older, and that is not having to get him into a diet to lose weight. Thinking I don't have to buy him an appetite suppressant does make this problem sound better. Unlike when I was a kid where my parents helped me lost weight because a lot of people made fun of me being so fat. Maybe this will turn out fine in the long run. I hope.
