My son too

He's the hungriest boy ever, lol! This is a good thing. :). Just look for variety and foods that are filling and wholesome like avocado or protein. My son likes chicken and sweet pea baby food makes a great chicken and veggies dish.

foods

If its food she's eating, i'd say you're one lucky momma! :)
Get her hooked on the healthy stuff and it'll be no sweat to convince her to eat it when she's older :)

If it's not food and she just likes to munch, then maybe keep snacks like carrot sticks around for snacking?

I have a picky eater you're lucky

If your referring to the quantity of healthy food she's eating then that's great!! She. Ay be going though a growth spourt! My friends kids are so tall and skinny and they sure put away food!

If your referring to her eating too much and u healthy food well it's a matter of tough love and offering on,y healthy choices if she's really hungry she will eat them. (good advise for myself with my picky eater too) its hard but it's for the better of the child.

HI Dawn


Did you have any luck getting your picky eater to eat healthier foods following the tough love?How many days did it take to get her to start eating more healthy foods?

Haven't started tough loving her yet but as soon as she's feeling better unfortunately for her she will eat good wholesome food or her belly will ache til she eats it I've been talking with family services at the hospital to get help and after her urine test came back and the dr said I can tell she doesn't eat very well, we have to out both our feet down!!

Clarification?

eating food? healthy? unhealty?
non food items? dangerous?

healthy food options at her level (a small shelf or cupboard within reach) that shecan grab snacks from at her leisure may help if it just a matter of unhealthy eating.

GOOD LUCK!!! it will be very difficult at first, but it takes 3 days to change a child's habit!! It will be the worst 3 days of your life. She will thank you when she's older!!! Right now, just hang in there. Make sure both you and your hubby are home for those 3 days as you will have to draw from eachother's strength!!! Give her options that are similar to what she like. Make some fruit smoothies with berries and yogurt. It's healthy but like a milkshake. The probotics from the yogurt will help her tummy feel better too! Try throwing some purreed carrots in with raspberries, she won't know there are veggies in it!

Thanks I will! Family services said to pick one item each meal that I know she likes and will eat then add the other stuff for her to try that way I know she will eat some of it. And suggested she might be a bland eater so if we have casserole separate hers

She is very healthy!!! She eats lots! Thank you for all your replies! I was off for a few! I was more talking about paper, dog food, anything she can get her hands on! I make all my baby food! She just loves to put things in her mouth!
