  • Can you expand on that some? Doesn't eat anything as in no bits of food pass his lips ever, or he is picky about what he eats, or what?

  • not eating anything and only eating the junk food purchased, prepared and provided by her caretakers are two different things

    if you want her to eat healthy only offer her healthy
    easy peasy
    any other concerns we may help you with?

  • Then only offer the healthy food.
    It is your fault for giving her the junk and now it is up to you to get rid of the junk food in your home and listen to her tantrums until she relearns what food is. That does not mean that as soon as she eats something healthy you bring back the cookies.

  • If you don't have cookies and crackers around she can't eat them. She won't starve herself to death, though she may make you miserable for a bit. And you may just piss her off. That's OK.

  • You started giving her junk food too soon, before she developed a taste for fruits and vegetables. It's not going to be fun undoing the damage. You'll have to offer her the healthy foods you want her to eat and not the junk you don't, and then outlast her. She won't starve herself, but she may make you wish you never heard of cookies at all before it's over. Good luck.

  • Okay. A baby that old shouldn't know what junk food is. Hey. Bad job.
