my daughter is 3 years old. she doesnt show any interest in eating. whenever i keep the plate infront of her she starts crying and shows tantrums. i take her to new places like balcony or garden so that she will feel good and eat. but still she doesnt eat. she just dont open her mouth and doesnt agree to eat.

beacuse of this am not able to concentrate to start working. as i am afraid of keeping her in daycare.

please suggest.

She must be eating something otherwise she wouldn't be growing. Instead of taking her somewhere to "feel better" you should ignore the tantrum and just leave her at the table. By giving in and removing her because she throws a tantrum she is winning and knows how to get her own way. You need to show her that you are the parent and you make the rules, not her.

Maybe daycare would be good for to see the other children and sitting with them to eat.
