Given the fact that he tested positive to watermelon, we're assuming he's allergic to most fruits and veggies because the symptoms are the same as when he ate watermelon.

Also, I've been hearing about something called "supertasters" lately. Here's a link you might find interesting:

Thanks for the insight. I have never heard of a supertaster or thought that it could be an allergy. That's a cool test. I might try it on all of us.

My Daycare Oh, I should add that he is a little guy 5th percentile for height & weight. Small, but proportional and healthy.

My Daycare My son is 4 and I have always considered him a picky eater. When I read on here about picky eaters, the things that those children eat or different than what my son eats. I've noticed that a lot of picky eaters love fruit. Mine does not.

He likes all meat, some starch and dairy products. The only kind of fruit he can get down more than a bite of is an unripened green banana. He does not like candy or pop because they are "too hot." I'm not totally complaining about that, I just wonder why. He does love chocolate.

He gets one bite of a fruit or veggie with every meal and he will eat it without a fight, but he does not like it.

My other children and hubby eat very well.

I do hide stuff in his bread and meatloaf, but it's difficult sometimes to do in sauces or stews because he does not like purees or sauces.

Any suggestions or insights?
