My 4 yo. WONT eat dinner. We don't give her anything to eat after lunch time (midday) or anymore to drink for an hour before dinner, we eat between 5 and 6 pm ( bed time is 7.30pm) and she gets only half as much food on her plate as her younger brothers. She is not worried that the boys get jelly and icecream after they have eaten, she would rather go to bed than spend some one on one time with me if she eats her dinner. My husband and I have spent 4 hours with her on more than one occasion trying to get her to eat and she just wont eat. I have tried moving dinner time to lunch time with no success and I refuse to make her 2min noodles or cheese sandwiches for dinner every night. She is getting worse as she is getting older, thing that she use to eat now she wont and she will not even look at anything new. HELP, how do I make her eat?
