Baby will only eat baby oatmeal no regular oatmeal, use to eat some veggie but now won't eat them, Baby loves, chips, cookies, juice, bananna's, french fries, chicken nuggets, sometimes mac and cheese very pickie eat, what can I give her to eat better,she makes faces all the time about anything you try to make her eat. Will she grow out of this if so how long did it take.

Sometimes pickiness is due to the parent catering to the child. I watch a 2 yr old that would never eat any of his veggies. His mom would cater to him when he would not his meal.....so if he did not eat the meal he was served she would give him snacks and crackers because she felt bad that he was hungry. Once she stopped catering to him he started eating better. When she stopped giving him the snacks and crackers and started to enforces the "this is your meal....eat it or go hungry" he started to eat his veggies. He now eats almost every kind of veggies without issue. Kids will go through ups and downs with eating if you only offer healthy foods they will eat them.
