Hey mommy, i feel your frustration, i myself am dealing with the same thing since my son was 1 years old. He is now six and now has a stronger appetite but still struggles to eat all his meal. I have gone to doctors but they say feed him what he likes most. BUT i did not want him to keep on eating the same thing every time. I have seen that "PediaSure" for kids works pretty well, he gets more hungry often through out the day and instead of me running after him all day asking him "are you hungry" he comes to me and says he hungry. Also try sitting down with her and challenge her while seeing you eating also, its encouraging. I sit down and play games with my son. Like for example, i will say okay if you eat 4 more pieces of pasta and drink all your milk you can have ice cream after or cookies. Or i will say lets see who eats more ready go.....and i will purposely eat slower and less so he will win and i applaud him loudly.
