Don't worry! at this age more food is feeding your floor... let your little girl eat what she likes, what she can manage... i put stuff in pancake batter, or in scrambled eggs, and oatmeal mix... to keep mealtime interesting.... this is a word from a mom of five kids, tried and true.... your daughter might still like gooey and squishy things too... again, don't worry!

OK - so she's on the small side. Has she always been on the small side? Has she lost weight? Has she been sick? How big were you and her father when you were her age? How tall are you now? If you and her Dad are both smaller people, then it's probably perfectly normal. However if she was in the 85% in height at 1 year and has stopped eating and lost weight then you need to go to the Dr. But just because she's on the small side and she doesn't eat lots and lots does not mean there is anything wrong.

Does she eat other solid foods? If it's just the chapati's, perhaps it's just her personal preference. My 18 month old doesn't like bread or crackers very much, but she eats all kinds of other things. Fruits, veggies, meats, rice, pasta, etc. If she's just being a picky eater - that's normal for this age. Keep offering healthy choices and she'll eat what she needs. However if she's not eating much of anything else either it may warrant a trip to the pediatrician. What does she eat and or drink?
