    Default How much does your 20 month old eat?

    DD doesn't eat much at all, I give her plenty of options & food but she eats a little bit (a couple mouth fulls, or bites of meat & veg) and she's done. Throws it on the floor.
    She loves fruit & cheese and would eat that all day. I just have trouble getting other things into her - even sandwiches!
    She has been getting a lot of teeth so I hope it's related to that. Although she's never been a great eater.

    Yes my little one (23 months) is similar. We offer her a mini meal of whatever we are having at every meal time, but she will only pick at it. Much prefers a piece of cheese, fruit, or greek yoghurt with honey throughout the day.
    Could be a textural thing - I have noticed my wee one will prefer soups or liquids to meals that require more chew. I don't stress it, I doubt she'll let herself go hungry and she is very healthy.

    I'm sure she won't starve but I just feel awful sending her to bed when she's hardly eaten.
    Hopefully it's just a stage.

    Having the same problem with my 18 month old. He has slipped down to the 25th percentile for weight from the 50th percentile at 12 months. I am starting to worry. He has not lost weight but only gained about 1/2 a kilo in 6 months.
