  • Give her time. If her doctor is not worried about it, then neither should u.

  • just keep offering them. they say you have to offer them about 7 times or something. you could hide them in something she does like, and what she does eat doesnt sound too bad! Keep up the good work!!

  • picky eaters are made by giving in, she eats what she is given or she will go hungry. A healthy normal child will not starve itself and therefore will eventually eat what they are given, don't give options it is this or nothing.

  • when i was babysitting i used to have the same problem with 3 kids. all they wanted was mac & cheese, an any kinda pasta. they wouldn't eat any veggies so i took some cheese wiz or any kinda cheese an sprinkle it on the veggies or cook or steam some veggies cut them small an mix them in with the things she likes...just don't over do it or she won't eat it...if she's like that when she gets older get veggie dip an let her dip her veggies in there it works wonders just watch them when they do that or they will only eat the dip...

  • Anonymous Person! I do not feed my child junk food none of the food i listed was JUNK! I asked for helpful answers not RUDE REMARKS! So I would appriciate if you would keep your not very nice comments to your self & not have an attitude on my question & I'm pretty sure any of the other mothers on here would feel the same way. Thank you & have a nice day!

    To you other mothers that commented thank you so much!

  • not all picky eaters are from parents giving in. Our rule in our house was eat what we have or do not eat at all. I went a lot of nights not eating at all. I am very picky and always have been.
