My daughter is 22 months now and is sooooo picky when eating. I can no get her to eat anything... she lives off muffins, mac and cheese, cherries, apples and chicken nuggets. I have tried everything to get her o eat other things....but she swats at me when I ask her if she wants a bit of mine or if I put something new on her plate. I put a hot dog on her plate and she picked it up and said "no"...then tried to hand it to me. I said "honey, can you try it? It's good" and made some ummm sounds. "no, no, no I don't want it!" and throws it at me. I pick it up and put it on her plate again and she will refuse to eat anything else on her plate and flips out on me. I cut some apples up and put alittle peanut butter on the side (her brother was eating this too, he loves it) and she had a fit because there was peanut butter on her plate....she tried to pick it up to throw it at me and got it on her hands and it turned into a drama party. What am I going to do with her? How do I stop this? I have also tried to put alittle on her lip or in her month to get her to taste it and drama party times 5. It takes me forever to calm her down and she won't eat anything after that. Can anyone help me with this?
