My 19 month daughter only will eat steamed veggies, fruit, crackers and bread. She won't eat any dairy- yogurt, cheese etc. and now is even starting to refuse milk, I try and offer it through out the day in smaller quantities to get her to drink and after a few sips she pushes it back and says "done". She also won't eat meat- we try all the time to give her meats and dairy hoping that one day she will "like it" but it is just not happening! We have tried eliminating snacks so at her meal times she will be hungry and eat but she takes sooo long to eat and just wants to play. She is also not wanting to take a nap anymore she will just sit in her crib and play. I am getting so exhausted always cooking 2 meals (for my husband and I and then one for her- because she will not touch what we are eating- we always try first and she always refuses.) We have tried limiting time she gets to eat. Tried skipping a meal if she refuses to eat what we are serving her. All of it just makes her very cranky. Has anyone else been experiencing this??
About her: She is growing great 99% Height and 75% weight. She is SUPER energetic and doesn't stop moving all day. Very smart- says around 350+ words and fully comprehends everything we say to her and is bilingual. She doesn't have any allergies or other health concerns.
