We have to give her a supplement shake because she will not eat any veggies (except for pureed baby food veggies). The only fruits she will eat are apple and banana, but not with any consistency. Her eating problem is so frustrating. I've tried making meals look fun to eat and have used other tactics, but nothing seems to work. The pediatricians never seem concerned about it when I ask. I dread mealtimes.

Stop supporting her picky eating. Fix dinner for the family. Put some food on her plate. Tell her to eat it. If she refuses. Throw it away and tell her she will eat nothing else tell the next meal. When feeding her do not give her anything to drink but water. Kids fill up on the sweet drinks. and nothing but water between meals either. If she eats she gets milk or whatever you let her drink after. She will not starve herself. I did this with my kids. I never had a problem getting them to eat.
