Sweet Tooth Toddler won't Eat Anything Else

My 2 year old loves sweets (what child doesn't, right?) but its gotten to the point where she won't eat anything else. My husband just gives her whatever she wants. He'd rather she eat than go hungry. I know eating nothing but sweets isn't healthy and she's underweight as it is. I try to have her eat something healthy at mealtimes and snacktimes. I've even told her "eat 2 bites of this and you'll get a treat." But that doesn't work. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

My 3 year old is the same way except with milk. She wont eat or drink anything except milk. I had to make it to where I wouldn't give her anything but water with mijo or some type of squirt juices. And she had to eat her food before she got a drink. If she wouldn't drink it o well. She'll eventually get hungry and have to eat. I felt like I was starving my child I was worried but she now knows if she's hungry she needs to eat what's in front of her because I wont give her whatever she wants. They eventually stop being stubborn and eat.
