  • 2 out of my 3 kids were the same way! They wouldn't want to eat anything and pick for weeks, then BAM...they acted like they had and empty leg! I wouldn't force it on her, she'll eat when she's hungry...Obviously don't let it go TOO long, but give her some time...she'll be eating you out of house and home before you know it!

  • i was going to say if you find the answer tell me so i can use it on my 3 year old! he'll love something one day and then hate it for months before he likes it again for a day. Seriously, my 1 year old eats more than him. I wouldn't worry to much, but you might want to consider a vitamin if she doesn't get one already. good luck!

  • my daughter will be 2 in feb and she goes through periouds where she wont eat either the first time she went through it i felt like a horrible mother because i couldnt help her and i felt like i was starving her even thought i tried feeding her 2 or 3 times an hours and she would refuse everytime. i think it might just be something with them. something my grama told me that helpped is,...if she was hungry she would eat! i hope that helps you.

  • when she gets hungry, she'll eat. start askign her to choose one dish for supper that she will be willing to eat and worry not.
