My daughter won't eat

My daughter is 16 months old and the past 2 days she just won't eat. She is healthy and happy, teething yes, and I just can't entice her with anything to get her to eat. There's nothing physically wrong with her. I don't know what to do and I am worried that she's going to suffer malnutrition or that an eating disorder is starting. Ok, so I am a bit a single, first time mom.

First of all, I've never heard of an eating disorder in a baby/toddler.

If she's teething, she probably doesn't want to eat, her gums hurt, she's feeling ucky...

One thing about kids: They will not starve themselves. When she's hungry, when her gums stop hurting, when she starts feeling better, she'll eat again. Until then, make sure she's drinking, and all is fine.
