Serve her the foods she likes and continue to expose her to other foods (she may see a new food 10 times before she decides she wants to try it). She should gradually get better at trying new things.

Give her the foods she likes to eat for now. Obviously you would like the moajority of what she eats to be healthy, so try to give ger as much of those foods as possible so at least she is eating. Usually this is just a phase and it should blow over.

Well, find a time of day where she likes to eat and feed her the most at that time. She'll eat when she's hungry. If you find her loosing weight or malnurished then you can give her some carnation instant breakfast or some toddler formula to make sure she's getting all the vitamins she needs. When she wakes up, try to feed her instead of giving her something to drink when she's not all the way focused. My daughter always eats better in the morning that way, then i wait about fifteen minutes after she's decided that she's done to give her her morning milk. If she likes baby mush, you could try that mixed with the cereal. they can have the baby cereal until they're two.
