My daughter is 2 1/2 years old. She is the pickiest child I have ever seen. She eats cereal (dry only), waffles and pancakes (with nothing on them), apples, grapes, yogurt (sometimes), chicken nuggets (McDonalds only), French fries, hot dogs. And, of course, junk such as fruit snacks, chips, things like that if they are offered to her. She was not always like this. when she started eating solid foods, she was eating everything that I gave her.
My husband and I went away for the weekend and left the kids at my moms house. When we picked them up, she told me that she would not watch her again until I got her eating more foods. She said she tried spaghetti, regular cooked chicken, and sandwiches. My daughter wouldn't eat any of it.
I have tried just letting her not eat. Figuring that if she got hungry enough, she would break down and just eat. She doesn't. I know she will not starve herself. And she is healthy. Good in both height and weight. Her iron is fine. But I need to figure this out. Any suggestions?
