I have reached my wits end with DD who will be 5 in a few months.
As a baby on pureed food she'd eat anything and everything. Once she started feeding herself it got tricky but we still go some vegies in.
Fast forward to now and we have completely regressed. She will not eat any fruit unless it is puree'd apple. Vegies we have managed carrot and peas and couscous instead of potatoes. She's stopped eating much of anything except plain crackers, plain pasta or plain rice. She seems to only want salty or sweet foods - which she doesn't get- but now I understand her request for vegemite (salty) or a croissant which I deem sweet.
Her tonsils and adenoids are slightly enlarged but not as bad as her brothers who had some feeding issues due to the size of his. The ENT said her's were questionable whether or not to come out so for now they stay. We had thought this was the issue when she stopped eating meat.
Where do I go from here? Obviously the GP but do I go to a dietician or to a paediatrician? This can't go on - she's not putting any weight on, always got a runny nose or a cough (maybe just the season, I'm not sure) and just generally I'm worried about her. We went to a kids party on Sunday and she literally ate half a bread roll. Breakfast is no better - we're down to cereal with no milk!
I've tried everything I can think of - nothing to eat if you don't eat your dinner, saying something, not saying something - nothing works. DS wasn't like this and I'm out of ideas.
