2 year olds can easily become picky. They could eat something one week and then hate it the next. I have experience this with my 2.5 year old.

Two year olds are tricky. She could be going through a phase that has to do with textures and colors and tastes and get very, very picky about what she eats. Or, she could have something going on that need evaluation. If it was me and this was a change for her, have her evaluated by your pediatrician. More than likely it is just a picky phase but if i isn't, best to be on the safe side.

You could try different foods, fresh and cooked, different textures. Do not try to get her to eat by offering sweets. Stick to fruits and veggies...
