My daughter is 21 months old and is an extremely picky eater. Some days it would seem like she wouldn't eat at all. I even took her to the doctor to see if I needed to worry about nutrition. They told me that babies at her age will eat when they are hungry, do not force. If she eats a cheese stick and three crackers then that's great. Right now they are exploring new foods and being an independent eater. Worry about what the child eats in a year or two. If you want to make sure the child gets enough nutrition, I give my daughter a chewable vitamin everyday. I give it after she eats as a 'treat' because it encourages her to eat a little more.
