You also need to model what kind of behavior you wish her to use. Show her how to use a spoon and fork. Show her how to use her cup. Tell her we do not throw food. Take the plate away for a minute to get the point across. I use this method all the time. It does get some results, even from one this young.

What are you feeding her different at dinner? How long has she gone since eating by the time dinner comes. If she had a snack an hour before she might just not be hungry.

Truth be told, humans in general do not need a big meal at night. It is actually healthier to have a big breakfast a medium lunch and a small dinner. It allows our bodies to burn the calories while we're active. Children in general are great at listening to their bodies needs.

Maybe just try getting her to eat something small, even if it's just a tangerine or other fruit. My 12 month old will eat grapes or yogurt for dinner sometimes and not have any issues being hungry. After those nights she will eat a nice big breakfast.
