am panicking a bit with this one! DD has been ill offf and on for the last few weeks with the runs and sickness ( I have had it too) stool sample has come back clear and she seems fine in herself. She is drinking fluids but is refusing to eat anything. I dont think she is even hungry (is she ever?)

Has anyone got any really good ideas to get her to eat or increase her appetite? any tonics or anything before she disappears when she turns sideways?

Reluctant to even bother seeing the GP as they dont seem to think this is a problem

nah- they're mine and ghostys ones (Usana) . chocolate, vanilla or strawberry (although I don't have strawberry at the moment). The whole pack is a bit big to send, but maybe I could scoop some into a freezer bag for you to try? One bag of vanilla, one of choc? Email me your address if you want to give them a go

i found when ds done this especially after he had been unwell,he also stops eating when stressed,get tonico from the chemist its a build up tonic for kids for after and during illness but it seems to give them an appetite too which helps them get eating again.
