My 2 year old daughter stopped really eating over a year ago. She ate baby food then when she went to solid food she did alright and then probably abround 13 months or so she hardly eats anything. Sometimes she might eat a couple bits of egg and that's all she will eat all day or a piece of ham and that's all she will eat all day. I took her to the doctor and we found out she had yeast on her esophagus. It was treated he said that's why she wouldn't eat. She got treated for 3 weeks and it's gone but she still aint eating. Any ideas?

Did the doctor set her up on a treatment plan to get her to eating again? You should have asked him that question. She went for so long with that problem she may be afraid to eat again because of the pain it caused her. Talk to the doctor.

Is he concerned about her health/weight?

you "ain't gotta" do anything, but I'd think that you'd want to do the best for your child...
