She is very young but she should be able to have most things that the rest of the familly is eating at all meal times. If you want to nip this in the bud..never stop serving her something just because she displayed a dislike for it before. Kids sometimes need to try something 20 times before they develop an appetite for it. Put it on her plate anyway..that way she gets used to seeing it and is more likely to eat it. Especially when she sees mom and dad enjoying it.

try pairing foods a familiar food with a new food for example if youre feeding her scrambled eggs give her a bite with a tiny bit of tomato or some other new food in it,
