My 18 month old daughter is having very little vegetables lately. Dinnertime is terrible. And it's been going on for at least 2 month now. Sometimes she takes a few bites and then it's just "no". Sometimes she refuses it straight away. I cook myself every evening, because I want her to have healthy food. A few times I gave in to it and she had just dessert (she loves yogurt), a few times she went to bed without dinner. I thought, well, she won't let herself starv, right? On the other hand she needs to grow. What do I do?
Also having arguments about that with my husband, which makes it even worse. He's also for "no dinner - no dessert", plus he tells her "eat!". Which in my optinion has no effect, but he needs to let her know, that mommy and daddy are the boss.
I am very insecure about this whole thing aswell as I have an eating disorder and that's the last thing I want her to inherit. Any advice? I'd be most thankful.
