    Default Non eating 17 month old.

    Does anyone have a 1 year old that doesn't really eat? She just doesn't seem interested, hungry, anything.
    I don't see how the tiny amount of food can sustain how active she is. I have spoken to MCHN's etc but when it all comes down to it, I can't make her eat! Is anyone going through anything similar? Would love to know I'm not the only one.

    Yep, DS only started eating at 16 months. I went to the doc before then and she told me I had to start weaning him to get him to eat solids. He was still demand fed....is yours like this?

    I have a three year old who has never been easy to convince to eat. I have found that giving things that she can eat on her own (finger food) has always been more successful. I do reward with treats. Like if she eats a good amount of dinner I will give her a desert. If not, no desert.

    I have spoken to doctors about it and because she is a good weight they are never worried. She never sits still so I understand what you mean about intake vs need for energy. I wish to high heaven I could eat as little and have so much freakin energy .. It's stressful and I feel for you. Our big winner is fruit, I keep trying to offer new foods but if they don't work I wait a while and offer something I know she will eat (fruit)

    All the best, its a constant worry for me, but she is healthy and not under weight so I know she is ok.
