Eating Time

I have a super hard time feeding my two-year old girl. She is just refuses to take in anything (dinner).
Good thing that she eats really well for breakfast (at home) & lunch (at daycare). But still, it's really frustrated that she doesn't eat well at home for dinner. Any tips?!

You can try limiting the amount of snacking that she does during the day, and what time she has them, but that doesn't always work. Both my girls do this (ages 2 and 3) and my Pediatrician said this was normal. I pretty much throw out full plates of food at dinner, but I know it's just a phase and they will grow out of it. I do give them a small snack right before bed so that they won't wake up hungry during the night (although this might make the problem worse. If they know they have a snack coming they may never eat dinner!)
