My daughter, 14 months, has not eaten lunch @ all for the past month. I make her things that I know she loves, I feed her the same time every day. But she wont eat it anymore. She eats a good breakfast and a good dinner. But in the middle of the day she will only eat a snack here and there (pretzels, whole wheat crackers, peice of toast, banana.) Is this okay for her? I worry that she isnt eating 3 meals a day.Answer Question

All that matters is that she's getting all the calories she needs for the day, it doesn't have to be split up a certain way. My 19-month-old, for instance, eats a huge breakfast (more than I normally eat), nibbles some during the day, eats about a toddler-sized dinner, and that's enough for him; he's growing appropriately and all that. For visualization purposes, if you take everything she eats throughout the day and split it up into 4 meals (or 3 meals and a snack), as long as it's about right for a toddler (toddlers need about 1/4 of what adults need) she's doing fine.
