Here goes, question and vent in one, lol.
My MIL, whom I love and normally get along with, thinks it is okay to take my DD to McDonalds every time she has her (2-3 tims a week) It has gotten to the point that my daughter will not eat what we have at home because she wants McD's instead. How do we combat this? I know I need to talk to my MIL but in the mean time, how do I get my DD to eat at home???

If she was a "normal" eater before then no worries. She will return to eating normal again. In the mean time your mother-in-law, you, and your husband need to talk. In a non threatening-we-love-you kind of way. She really doesn't need to eat fast food three times a week. Take her to your daughter's next pediatrician's appointment and have her listen to what her doctor has to say about eating fast food so often and how it can really damage her organs and her over all well being. As well as interfere with her normal growth and development physically and cognitively. Call ahead of time so your child's primary care doctor can bring it up as a "routine" discussion. Explain healthy to your child and why you want her to eat healthy. Then let her detox and she will go back to eating well again.
