is she not eating and solids or just not eating small food for her to pick up?

Try to start feeding her soft foods such as mashed potatoes. Then you can move her into other foods that you still feed her, such as spaghetti. Some children just don't care to feed themselves at one year old. Others just don't have the muscle control to do it yet.

Always put things on the tray that she can pick up and try to eat on her own (such as Cheerios). One day she will just decide to pick it up and put it in her mouth. Around one years old i would also leave a soft tipped spoon for them to play with while i fed them.
