Does anyone have any advice? My 16m old girl can be really fussy when it comes to eating. During the week at nursery, she eats three meals a day plus snacks but when it comes to the weekend, trying to get her to eat more than a few mouthfuls at a time is really difficult and making me worry and stress. She does have days (at home) that she eats very well but more often than not, she will only eat a few mouthfuls then throw the food on the floor and refuse to eat anything more! It's very rare that I can get her to eat a proper meal. Am I worrying over nothing or should I seek further advice? Any thoughts/advice/experiences would be most welcome. Many thanks
Is she snacking during the weekend? Do you give her anything to eat, even just a cracker, a biscuit or a couple of chips outside the table and meal times. Do you eat sitting all at the table or is it just her on a high chair ? Do you give her juices or milk? Two hours before meal time, my kids did;t have anything to put in their mouth and the only drink was water. Don't underestimate how even the smallest snack alters appetite.
