My daughter is 2 yrs now. She doesn't eat anything without grinding. She eats little and while infant use to vomit frequently, Now she reduced vomiting but only way to feed her is by diverting her attention using cartoons or in garden. Doctor says don't worry if she is playful but i worries as she weights only 9 kg. Only food she like is curd. I heard about speech therapy, is that related to such problem, if anyone has experience please help.

I don't have personal experience, but I do know that a speech pathologist/therapist works with both speech issues and feeding/swallowing disorders. If you aren't comfortable with your pediatrician's direction, you can get a second opinion and/or find a speech pathologist and see if an evaluation is warranted. Good luck!
