My daughter Kacie is about to be 15 months. Just about 2 months ago she stopped eating regularly. She only wants junk food example Ice cream, chips, candy, etc. It worried me because she will go the whole day without eating and when I offer her food she refuses it. She stays drinking juice but eats no food. Don't get me wrong I try feeding her but I've gotten so frustrated that I just gave up. WHen I make a meal I try giving it to her but nope she still wont eat. Fast food either. However, whenever I seen her to my mother's house she eats fine all weekend she will eat eat eat. I'm worried because I dont know if it is her knowing she can get away with eating junk with me or what but PLEASE HELP.Answer Question

Just stop buying junk, and stop giving it to her. If it's not in the house, she won't want it. I know she is still so young, but try to have her help you with simple things when preparing meals.

It is that she knows you will give her the junk. Like others have said you need to make it not an option. You need to deal with this now or its only going to get worse. She is only 15 months and its been going on for 2 months already? IMO at that age she shouldn't have had that much Junk food introduced to her already.
You will be in for a rough couple of days but it will be better for both of you in the long run!
