My daughter is 2 years old and she refuses to eat anything at home. At the day care she eats a lot and in the evenings and weekends she refuses to eat. I sit down with her every night so she can eat something but she starts to scream and kick if I bring the food near her. She wont even eat a biscuit even though it is the same biscuit she gets at the day care

2 years is definitely the age when kids can get really picky, and I've heard that kids will often be pickier with their parents than at daycare. Will she not eat anything at all, not even PB&J sandwiches or fruits? My son hasn't gotten into the picky eating stage, but he occasionally will eat things at daycare that he won't eat at home.

Yes I have tried to do that but then she pushes the bowl away and go play or she will simply through the food in the trash

I wonder if she is just asserting her independence. Have you tried putting food out on a low table (like a coffee table) and letting her go up to it and feed herself? My son is only 1 year old, but he loves to feed himself snacks out of a small plastic bowl that he carries around the house with him.
