This is a nightly occurance, I usually just leave her be and the fill her up on snacky bits so she's not hungry - however, this is now getting ridiculous !
I asked if she wanted a yoghurt - yes - OK after dinner - cue screams of YOGHURT YOGHURT YOGHURT ! I've now removed the remainign mash from her plate as most of is between her fingers, in her hair, on my floor, anywhere but in her mouth basically. She only has carrots and sausages left, very easy for her to eat, it's not that she can't it's that she just doesn't want to.
Now all I can hear is 'Don't like it' SCREAM 'Don't want it' SCREAM !
dont ask her if she wants yoghurt til she has finished her tea but dont focus too much on what she leaves. i no longer bother with high chair for my 18 month old as he enjoys sitting with me <<<bad mom alert!!>>>
my ds prefers to feed my dog so you can imagine how little he actually eats!
I usually would and have been up until now but surely she has to start eating properly at some point ! She eats her breakfast no trouble but lunch and dinner times are a nightmare, even if she doesn't create, she just doesn't eat !
No advice as I am in terrific turmoil on food front. Today for instance have reinstated 'no eating between meals' except for designated snack times. And the result -crap! Hardly anything eaten all day. Am about to serve up veg curry and know it will be rejected. Recently tried no pudding because no dinner was being eaten and again just got sulking,hysterics and screaming. Good luck
