Hello im new to this and i been looking somewhere to ask other moms if this is normal? My daughter is 2 & a half years old she doesnt eat very well all day. We have breakfast, lunch and dinner. During all these times i serve her a plate for her she doesnt finish it all she eats i want to say half of the plate in every meal, but between those time she eats a lot of fruits crackers and drinks plenty juice. I dont know if this is normal? Shes very active and i would expect her to be hungry since shes always running around. I have took her to a doctor but the doctor always tells me she is fine. What can i do to make her eat more?

if she is eating then try not to worry. How big is the plate you fill up? She might also be eating too much between meals. Or she could just not want to eat what you are serving. My daughter currently will only eat stir fry for supper. I can put whatever I want in the rice and she will eat it. But she won't touch other suppers. She eats during the day as well. It is probably just a stage. You could also be feeding her at a time that doesn't "work" for her. I can't eat when I wake up. I have no appetite and if I do eat I feel ill. If I eat an hour- hour and a half later I feel fine.
