She eats a few bites and no longer interested in the food item. Very finicky. Becoming more difficult. What's going on? Please help.

That very typical for a toddler. She has slowed down her rapid growth a bit and may not be as hungry. Toddlers are very fickle eaters. As long as she is eating and drinking water and milk, keep offerring options and she will eat. It can be frustrating and she may seem like she is not eating enough, but as long as she is reaching milestones and not losing weight and seems bright, alert and content, I would not worry.

One other thing is to be sure she isn't drinking a serving of milk soon before mealtime. Then she will be too full to eat.
