my 2 year old daughter wont eat anything other than yogurts and cheese , she is loosing weight , i don't know how she has the energy she does have with eating so little , the health visitor has been and told me not to make a fuss about it (so i havn't ) told me to keep a diary of her food intake (which i have ) told me to get her involved with the cooking and food prep (so i have ) and told me to put her on vitamins (so i have ) this has been going on a long time now and i'm starting to get worried , i have taken her to the doctors and was told if she doesn't start putting weight on they will admit her for blood tests , the health visitor is coming again next week , im trying everything she tells me to try but all my daughter wants is yogurts and cheese . please has any one got any ideas what i can try ? x

Thanks Loraine , i will ask about the build up shakes , she does enjoy her milk and horlicks drinks plus the yogurt drinks so she might like the build up shakes , its worth a try . xx

Hi Laura, sorry your daughter isn't eating, this has to be a worry for you. Do you think she dislikes other foods or could it be the textures she doesn't like?

will she drink milk shakes? If so you could try asking doctor or Health Visitor about "build up" shakes. I had these for my daughter when she was under weight as a fusy eater. They are similar to protein shakes body builders use to build up weight & muscle

Good luck x
