Hi, my friend at work has a three year old who will not eat.  We did provide mugwort/ chamomile bitters and it has been helping!  The one exception to this rule of not eating seems to be flowers...and he is not very discriminate.  So please help us with a lovely list of edible flowers!

Nasturtium, Alyssum, Rose, Black Locust, Redbud.

Most flowers will not provide much in the way of calories, though ,so it's probably not a long-term solution to the issue?
