My 22 month old doesn't eat properly.
She may have a few bites here and there and will sometimes snack like a little champ when we are out. but never FULL meals.
She's weird, unlike other children she won't even eat chicken nuggets.
The only things we seem to be able to get her to eat are the "forbidden foods" ( cookies, chocolate...junk!) or apples, cucumbers, cheese strings, goldfish, french fries.
She will USUALLY eat spaghetti too. but a lot of times she will demand a bottle (toddler supplement made by enfamil)
I worry...i try and sit her down and eat breakfast but she will not eat eggs, eggo waffles, anything! Only occasionally cereal (cheerios) or toast with Nutella, and again at lunch same thing, she flat out doesn't want to eat! Supper is always a struggle, because she doesn't seem to want to try anything new. And you litterally have to FORCE a bite in..and I hate it and can't do that....so we give in and give her a bottle.
What can I do?
Doctor doesnt seem concerned, she is a petite little girl.....I actually saw a 1 yr old at the park the other night who was around the same size as her :/
Anyhow my question is : How can I get her to eat balanced meals without having to force feed. How can i get her to even try things, because i know if she TRIED it, she would likely like what I am trying to feed her??
Am I doing something wrong ? Help me out so I don't make the same mistakes with my other dd ( who is now nearly 3 months old)
