My wee 2.5 yr old used to be a great eater... now she is fickle, and a grazer... I know she will not starve herself but she is frustrating.. we have starting to give her smaller portions and then taking her plate away if she will not sit still at her table and eat. (mean huh!)

She gets upset for a minute or two then she is off and not even asking for food...

Do you have suggestions please... she loves Carrot and Chips (not that she gets them often but am starting to disguse food for her)! she will eat most things but in small doses like - a bite of banana, and a 1/4 of an apple.

ideas? suggestions??? help please...

My 3.5yo was never a great eater. If there was anything happening, sitting down to eat was not on the agenda. We'd be managing a bite on the fly as he whizzed past most of the time. It's only just been in the last few months that he's a) started eating substantial quantities, and b) started eating a variety of food! It might just be a stage, and you may find that the next growth spurt sends her running back to the dining table... In the mean time, maybe just offer small amounts often? Have a 'snack box' that she can snack from during the day and try smaller meals with more options?

I have 2 2.5yr olds.1 of them will only eat bread and chippies the other one only eats pasta, bread and chippies .they eat some other things sometimes but the majority of the time its the other things we come back too.my girl is always wanting food and often only has bits of it.I just go with whatever makes them happy.they aren't going to be young for long and am hoping they will grow out of it.our feeding specialist suggested putting little bits on their plate..then eventually get them to touch it..next step is to put it in their mouth and spit it out..next step to chew it..then get them to swallow it.very time consuming but effective.hope this helps.don't stress it won't harm her being a grazer.she will eat when she's hungry :)
