help, i'm at my wits end! I can't get my 6 year old daughter to eat anything.
It's a fight in the morning to have breakfast, she won't eat her lunch and i'm lucky if she finishes her supper. any ideas?

Stop fighting w/ her then. It sounds like she has turned eating into a power struggle w/ you... and it's one she will win.. so don't fight. Keep offering her food regularly, but pay NO attention to what she does or does not eat of it.

that's the frustrating part, she isn't sick.
shes been a picky eater since birth and she has days where she eats all day and others where she will only pick at things

It is not normal for a child to refuse to eat anything at all unless they are sick. I'd be taking her to the doctor.
