I am looking for some advice if at all possible, my daughter is 2.5 years old and from about 18 months she has become fussier and fussier with her eating, I have been numerous time to speak wth health visitors and they all say it's a phase but it's been a year.
I did baby led weaning and she ate everything for the first year of eating but gradually she has cut everything out and now survives on toast and weetabix, she won't eat anything else at all, occasionally she'll eat some chips but if I make them at home, she won't, only freezer chips. She will eat all types of "rubbish" food...chocolate, crisps, biscuits but no meat at all for a year and nothing remotely healthy, she will drink smoothies so I make them with vegetable and fruit in and give her vitamins as well but I need to get her out of this rut and I can't see how to start.
I make her dinner and lunch every day and we sit down to eat and she just says no and leaves it, she sometimes goes a whole day only eaten one weetabix, she has a two hour nap in the day and sleeps from 7pm-7.30am every night so doesn't affect her sleeping, she is advanced with her speaking, can count to twenty, knows the alphabet and all colours so it isn't affecting her learning but I'm sure it will have an impact if she carries on this way.
I should also mention my health vision said a dietician wouldn't help me as she eats some things and she also puts on weight...very slowly, think she has put on about 2lbs since Christmas! She isn't any less fussy if she's with other children eating or with grandparents etc.
Does anyone have any similar stories or advice?! I need some words of wisdom to help me see I can turn this around.
