  • What is the obvious solution? Think. If you have no snacks & candy in the house then what will she have to eat when she gets hungry?

  • My guess is there are thousands if not millions of toddlers running around starving because they won't eat and mom has no idea what to feed them.

    It's a frickin epidemic!!!!

  • Stop feeding the shit food to her.

  • Put the crackers away and leave them there till she gets huntry enough to eat the good food. Trust me, she will. It may take some tears and tantrums, but she'll eat the healthy stuff.

  • Seriously children will not let themselves starve no matter how stubborn they are. Feed her meals and DO NOT let her snack in between. At my house if they didn't eat their meal and asked for food later the meal was warmed up and offered again, and again, and again.

  • Really?
    You can't see the obvious solution to this?
    Might want to google "parenting classes" in your area.

  • That is your fault she does that. Put the food you want her to eat out. And the food you do not want her to eat up where she can not get to it.

  • Give her baby carrots and dip and cut up bananas as a snack

  • Again? Who is the adult? You are . Who buys the food? You do. Who gives the food? You do.
