  • Slow down on the drinks, and tell her after she eats she can have more drinks.

    If she continues to do so, you need to take her too the doctors. I am not a summer eater, when it starts to warm up I eat less. Just not as hungry.

    Or it could be a growth spurt, so make sure she is getting her vitamins.

  • How long has this been going on? Is she sick? Have you tried the Carnation instant breakfast shakes? My picky eaters like them.

  • Let her get hungry... If she's hydrated she should be fine.
    If she's sick and that's why she won't eat, take her to the Dr if you're worried..

  • Cut off the milk and juice until she eats food.
