My 5 year old daughter is such a picky eater. Not sure what to do anymore. Any advice would help! She used to eat many different kinds of foods, but now refuses most of the things she used to eat. She does like some fruits and veggies, but does not eat a typical breakfast, lunch or dinner. Not sure what to do.

I've tried that, but I don't want her to go hungry. She will eventually eat 1 or 2 pieces of something but I feel that she needs the energy. I won't give her snacks if she doesn't eat it, only fruits or veggies. Thanks. I think I am going to try to be more diligent though.

She eats what is put in front of her and what she is told to eat or she goes hungry! And no snacks then! That's what I did for my daughter. You are the parent, eventually they will give in and eat. It won't be easy so hold onto what you say and follow through!
