Limit intake of liquids and offer high fat foods is my #1. I noticed that when I quit giving so much milk and juice she would eat more at meals. Also, be okay with a mess. I let her eat how she wants, for as long as it takes her. She can use silverware or not. If she doesn't want her bib, I just undress her. I've also noticed that she will say she's done and want out of her chair, and then come over to the table and eat off our plates. We let her! More food in her tummy. I really recommend carnation instant breakfast so that you know they are getting proper nutrition. My DD has a glass every morning. Don't bother with pediasure, if you read the label you will see that it's almost exactly the same only carnation has more vitamins and less sugar, and is way cheaper. We also don't make as much prepared foods, or add real ingredients to everything we make.
