    No, your son cannot eat ham. This is non negotiable and I can't help but find it concerning that you appear to consider it as an option. The nursery and the father need to be told this. If your son is physically active and his weight is within the normal range, then it means that whatever you're feeding him is sufficient to keep him healthy even if he fusses over it and only eats half of it. If on the other hand, your son is SO picky about food that it is making him unhealthy/sluggish/underweight (underweight according to a doctor who has weighed him and performed tests, not underweight according to a grandma who wants a chubby "healthy" grandchild), then ask to be referred to a pediatric dietitian who should have some expertise and be able to advise on how to broaden his palate. Bear in mind that in the Western world, obesity has become so common that when children reach a healthy weight within the normal range; it's common for other parents to think the child is too skinny when in fact it's more likely that the other kids in school are overweight.

Does it even matter where he gets the food from that you're derailing the topic to that? Don't accuse me for derailing the topic, that's what you were doing. What I was doing was providing advice to someone, don't take it personally and try to create an argument. Ugh.

    Is the father not a Muslim?

    Also this isn't a fatwa site ...although the answer to this question was obvious.

    It is an open forum so just like you can post anything so can others. Some people have been here long enough to suss out when someone is trolling.

    If my son, who is 3, is an unbelievably fussy eater and won't eat anything else, is it OK for him to eat this until he's a little older and can understand why it's wrong.

    He has been very difficult when it comes to eating (ever since he was weaned at 6 months).
    What do you feed him when he is with you or rather what have you been feeding him since he was six months?

    If he can like the taste of ham then I am sure if you offer him a other foods he will find a halal food that he likes.

    As a parent you should be more concerned that the nursery fed him ham especially if you have not given them permission.

    Talk to the nursery and tell them they're not allowed to feed your son pork. If they continue to do so, take him to a different one. Also, tell his father the same thing and don't allow him to meet your son if he keeps giving him pork. You need to remember that it is haram to eat pork no matter what the reason. Don't let your son fall into such sinful habits at such a young age. I understand that he's a fussy eater but there are literally so many things that he can eat. It's not possible that he only eats one thing.

    Most if not all children when hungry enough will eat what they are given. At the age of 6 months they can be weened onto most things but that's done with now.

    It's not okay for him to eat Ham. If you can get him a play mate then perhaps he will copy him in his eating habits. Failing that be resolute and give him a range of healthy options. You can also google "fussy meals for kids" for ideas.

People aren't very nice on the internet in general, so don't pay much attention to the rude ones here. There are many others who are kind helpful and quite smart too. Hope your experience here is better than mine.

    People like you are the real trolls and at times bullies.
    May Allah swt ease your affairs, if that is the case..

    You didn't even answer the question/s I posed... No one attacked you. You came on a forum and shared this information, I raised some VALID points which you have failed to answer..
