Background

Girl, 19 months old, goes to day care 3 days a week. Has started becoming fussy about eating most things (as toddler will). So my wife and I have been feeding her some more simple items that she will eat, but are still relative healthy for her. we have been very careful to avoid foods heavy in refined sugar or heavily processed. Trying to keep with a more whole food style of eating.

She had a ruff time with day care for the first two weeks, but now will give us a big smile, waves and tells us good by/I love you when we drop her off.

about two weeks ago, I was picking her up from daycare, and saw her eating a packit applesauce squeez. Nothing wrong with it, but not anything we buy. I brought it up with the teachers. They(dealing with 8 other kids) thought it was hers.

Issue

Recency, last few days, her teacher has told us that at snack and lunch time she will sit down with her class members and she will start bursting out crying. she refuses to eat any of

  • If she doesn't lose weight and she doesn't snack as substitute for meals (like eat candy when she gets home) I don't see any issue at all.

    You could try putting her to bed a bit earlier so she is less reliant on taking naps (she could be just too tired)

    What works best for our fuzzy is always offer the right food but never force the issue. Encourage them to try things. But if they do you want it don't turn it into a big thing.

    It's something I learned and it even got my daughter who would refuse anything but dry bread into a good (ok slightly better) eater. But if your daughter isn't hungry and she isn't underweight then I would recommend just giving it time
