You can't make a child eat all you can really do is offer her healthy meals and SNACKS. Yes she will eat when she is hungry. Children have very tiny stomachs, they are only about the size of their fist so it doesn't take much to fill it up. It is not uncommon for a child her age not to eat much if she isn't going through a growth spurt. If you are concerned talk to your pediatrician about supplements such as pediasure and vitamins to insure that she is getting those because it is difficult to get enough from food when they don't eat much.

Don't give her any snacks between meals... When she is hungry, she will eat... If you Think she's not getting the proper nutrition,try enfagrow... I would also consult with your pediatrician...
