My Son Won't Eat When He Needs To

My Son is just 5 years old and type1, when he is low and needs some juice or something, he gets so mad at me for trying to make him eat. Does anyone have any tricks into making it seem fun? It scares me so much when all he needs is a juicebox and he won't drink one!

When my son was younger he used to go into fits all the time. He just didn’t like not being in control. It got easier once we started giving him a bit more ”power” (small cleaning tasks, choosing WHICH snack he gets, not IF he gets a snack, etc) and the fits were much rarer. It didn’t improve until he was a little older than yours, though, but maybe you can try something like that.

Giving him more options and control to what he drinks or eats may help eliminate those problems such as: you can have a cookie if you drink half of your juice.
