My daughter is fixing to turn 2 and she does't eat. She wont eat breakfast or lunch. When it is supper time she takes a couple of bites of her food and then she is done. It has been like this for at least 4 months. I dont know what to do.. Please help me.

Try different snacks; carrots and dip, apples (gala apples are the only ones my son eats without the skin) and Keebler crackers go over pretty well with applesauce. In the meantime, you might want to supplement her diet with Pediasure. If she's only going to eat certain foods, give her those foods and see if you can sneak an healthy ingredient or two in there every now and then. Good luck-hope this helps!

Leilani, No she doesnt eat snacks.. At first I thought it was b/c she didnt want to sent in her highchair so I stop putting her in there and fed her myself but, she still wouldnt eat. But I might try to log what she eats. Thank you so much

Is she eating snacks? My daughter is 2 and does the same thing. In fact, the doctor said she was a little underweight but she isn't unhealthy. My MIL told me not to worry about her not eating she will eat when she's hungry. Don't stress it. You could make a log of how much she eats everyday for a week & if you are extremely worried take her to the doctor and show the log to him asking if that's ok.
