I have no more ideas. I don't know how to get her to eat. She's down to just eating a cheese stick. I've done what the feeding therapist recommended, the pediatric GI, the pediatrician. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. We've tried discipline, ignoring her until she eats, bribing, no other foods till she eats, etc...NOTHING works!! Any ideas?

I mean, how man 3 yr olds would rather go to bed then get sweets? For 3 bites. That's all I'm asking for...

Oh and it's not illness this has been on going since 13 months old...

I'm so sorry to hear this. I really don't have any advice. I hope things get better for you. :(

I'm just so tired of the roller coaster. We've been at this going on 3 years in June. She LOOKS healthy so the drs think it's in my head but they don't see her NOT eating. She has a big bloated belly, she's had tests because she IS underweight. Well go figure on that one...

 Here this is what one lady  did for her daughter in my August 2009 group.

fill little ice cube trays with different things. I tried it tonight, guess what.. Savannah at something other then green beans or Ramon noodles. I put frozen strawberries, pretzels, banana, frozen blueberries, corn, chicken, frozen peaches, green beans, raisins, M&m, almonds. left a few clots open. She LOVED the fruit that was still frozen.

I'll give that a try! Thanks! I don't know if it will work but worth a try!
