Just another idea...is she teething?
My DS1 did this leading up to 2yrs (he's 27mths now). Went off most foods he has always loved....then suddenly 4 new teeth popped through, including some molars! So they must have been making his mouth quite sensitive. He's just started eating/chewing properly again in the last couple of weeks.
If she really doesn't eat well for awhile, despite the tough love approach (it didn't work here either) then perhaps purée servings of your dinner instead. That way it's healthier for her, but you aren't cooking two meals either.

I agree... Essentially I don't think so either. But her wake ups when she is hungry is different to a standard wake up in the night. I have only done it 3 times in the last 6 months so it hasn't happened often and it didn't become a habit! I generally don't need anything to eat in the night either, but very very occassionally I will wake up ravenous and can't go back to sleep without a light snack, so why can't a toddler be the same?

Here's an update for you:
Tonight I decided to just give her what we had (chicken & rice) and nothing else. I didn't give in, didn't get frustrated, just kept reminding her to eat her dinner, because that's all there would be. She ate it... it took nearly an hour and a bribe (DH asked for 3 bites and she could have ABC2) she did it... and then ate the rest now to see how we go tomorrow One day at a time!!

Google SOS feeding therapy. .. Nothing to do with sos tizzie Hall stuff.
It's a method of feeding. ... and introducing solids. Even better speak to your paed or mchn.... find a speech therapist who does feeding therapy. ..
As FL said chewing etc is very important for speech development.
Anyway. .I do SOS feeding therapy with my daughter but she's very young. But I know this is what many many people do for long term feeding issues.
It stands for sequential oral sensory...
It's often used for kiddies with aversions or medical issues but is very useful for situations like yours.
Anyway. . just a thought.
