food for my baby

You should be concerned about the amount of junk food your child eats, regardless of their weight now. You are setting them up for health problems later in life.
When they are children it is your job to make sure they know what's healthy and what is sometimes food.
You are the one that does the shopping so you make sure that the meals are healthy.
Of course children would prefer sweets and junk food but you need to learn to say no to your children. You are the parent and you need to act like one and not let the children dictate.

haha i have the same issues with my two year old and four year old. i really dont mind all the junk food as long as they are not overweight and not getting a crazy amount. i have the magic bullet and i mix the veggies or fruit into ice cream, maple oatmeal...it is hard as hell to get them to eat properly. i buy so many fruits and i cut them up and goes to waste. just keep trying:)

I have to agree with Shawnn. YOU are the one who controls what food is in the household. So just stop buying her these things!! A child won't starve themselves indefinitely. She needs to be eating the same meals you are eating.

First of all, your kid eats what you give them. Of course they like sweets more, if you're offering sweets in an effort to get them to eat something. Quit purchasing sweets. Quit baking treats. Quit offering them to your kid as a stopgap measure or as a bribe to do something.
You have to offer real food. With nutritional value. Veggies, fruits, protien, etc, are all necessary for a balanced diet. You eat real food, with regular nutritional value, do you not? You don't live on sugar, correct? Feed her what you eat yourself, and all will be well.
