My daughter is 20 months old and a VERY picky eater. She refuses food all the time and often cries when we try to get her to eat. There are only a handful of foods she will eat. She is very thin also, in the 25th percentile for weight. She throws food on the ground if she doesn't want to eat it and sometimes gags or spits out the food. Also she doesn't know how to use utensils yet but whenever we try showing her how she won't let us because she doesn't want us to hold her hand. She feeds herself with her hands but there are only a few foods she will let us feed her (foods that she can't eat with her hands). The only veggies she will eat are peas. Dinnertime is the worst. We often give up and just give her french fries and then a pediasure afterwards.
Anyone else have a picky eater? Share your stories or if you have any advice, please let me know. Thanks.
