I have a 3 yr old DD who has been a challenge to get to eat anything. There are times when all she wants to eat all day is bread or crackers or grapes. Today, all she wanted were Doritos. I told her no. She had to eat something else. I prepared her a grilled cheese sandwich with grapes. I put it on the table for her and told her that if she didn't eat it, she wasn't going to get anything else all day. (this is new for me since I have never done this before). She picked at it for a while. I went to change my 4 mo DS pamper and when I got back she had thrown her food in the trash and put her plate in the sink! WTH!!! I asked her why she did that and she said, "I didn't want it." I know she didn't do it out of rebellion. In her mind, she just didn't want it and threw it in the trash, but I must admit that I lost it. I sent her to her room. I didn't know what to do! I had told her that if she didn't eat that she wasn't going to get anything else...so now what???
I cooled down and she came out of her room and she asked me for a hot dog bun...just the bun. I told her no. She burst out crying. I still didn't give it to her. I made her chicken nuggets and put them on a plate in the kitchen. She didn't touch them. My DH comes home and she still didn't eat them. It's bedtime now and she still hasn't eaten and she's asking me for her milk. What should I do????
