Need recommendations on getting my 18 month old to eat

My little girl has always enjoyed food and always ate her dinner but for the past couple of weeks she's refusing to eat or she has a small amount and then won't eat anymore. I've tried feeding her myself but she just keeps saying no. Can anybody recommend anything I can try. Thanks

Well, I have a VERY picky eating son and have read most books about feeding him than about anything else. And the thing I've really learned, is that kids bodies are always changing and their appetites change too. They know when they're hungry. To ease your mind you might write down how much she eats every day and literally count the calories. But if it's just dinner, sounds like her body is just needing less calories because her growth is simmering down. My own little kids sometimes eat more than I do, and then they just pick. Trust your instincts.
