19 month old vomits on food

My little girl actually vomits up to around 5 times a week when eating, espcially if the food is slightly soft and lumpy (?texture issues). She vomits mainly when she has a cough or has something stuck in the back of her throat, I also believe she has a really sensitive gag reflex. Does anyone elses child vomit with different textured foods etc. I've seen her doctor and he has suggested I puree her food for a while, and to review in 2 weeks.

My son had same problem for a long time. I actually asked dr of it recently and he told me possibly an issue in throat, food storing in a little pocket or something and then coming back up. Do not know all details as we were going to watch his diet and try to confirm if certain foods caused the vomiting. He now has stopped doing this - seemed to end after I told DR about it thankfully. But he was suggesting a specialist if it continued. Good Luck and hope it passes as my sons did.
