I have a 23 month old type 1 son who is begining to have some food issues. Latley he has be wanting food and throwing tantrums when he dont get it. Everything will be going fine then all of a sudden he will get it in his head that he wants something, Mostly things like snacks and cereal, cereal ect. He know where these things are and will go and point and begin to get very upset when he cant have any and wont give up. I try to take him somewhere else and get his mind of it but he wont forget and will go right back. I know he can have snacks and he does get them but he cannot have them anytime he wants. I dont have problems with tantrums in any other situations like i have been latley with food. Any other parents out there with toddlers that may have this problem that may have some advise on how they have delt with this would be helpfull. I really feel bad for him, it can be very fustrating for both of us when this happens. I really am not sure what is the best way for me to handle this. Its not like i can explain why he cannot have these things because he diabetes as he is to young to understand. If anyone has any tips or advise it would be greatly appreciated.
