I dont know what to do. She hasn't ate very much the last few days at all. I changed our rules around because she hasn't been eating her meals. I made cake the beginning of the week so her thing right now is when she very first wakes up she will ask for some cake so I tell her no you haven't even ate breakfast yet. So then she will ask for a popcycle and I am like no what did I tell you. Then after going down the list of things she will ask for she will ask for cereal so I give her some and she eats 1-2 bites and waists the rest of it. Then like 5 minutes later she will go down the list asking for snacks again I tell her no because she didn't wat her breakfast. So then she will keep on asking I say no it goes until lunch time. I will make her a peanut butter and jelly or a grilled cheese or bolonga and cheese sandwhich or something like that she will eat one bite and that is all she will eat then 5 minutes later goes down the list of things again I tell her again no up until dinner. Then it is dinner time and she wont eat it at all not even a bite. Then I tell her she isn't getting any snacks she says ok. 5 minutes later we go at it again. The thing is do I just let her go hungry or what? I don't believe in making a sepret meal for my child. The only way I do that is if I know for a fact they don't like something I am making. But people keep telling me she will eat when she is hungry and other say let her eat what she wants, but I don't want to let her eat what she wants cause she wants junk food stuff like chips, popcyles, popcorn, stuff like that.Answer Question
