Over it! She still has plenty of energy, is growing despite the fact I can see her ribs. I guess they will eat when they are hungry?

There's a good book called "give peas a chance". It basically says from ages 1-3 eating isn't as important as it was the first 12 months of your child's life. Development is more important. It's a good read and made me stress less about my DD.

What about yogurt and dairy? My son wouldn't eat vegies and pretty much lived on toast and dairy at one point. I would put pureed orange sweet vegies into yoghurt and he loved it. Or you could try hummus or cashew cheese on toast for a change. Does she like sausages? If so you could try vegetarian sausages. I know you can get vegan schnitzel so they might make vegetarian nuggets. Also falefels might be popular. Store bought vegetarian stuff is full of salt to give it flavour and is mostly soy and potato but I at least felt like my son was getting vegies. Every few months he would devour a whole head of broccoli but hate it again the next day!

I have been through this and it was hell. The only thing that worked was completely cutting out all snacks and only offering good foods that DS likes. So when he eats now he is hungry and more likely to eat. Unfortunately my DS doesn't eat much meat but he has improved so much on other healthy foods.

Our boy is also two and sometimes eats and sometimes doesn't.
I hold on to two pieces of advice:
#1 from "Baby & Child" by Penelope Leach
"Believe that your child will never starve, if he is offered adequate food."
#2 from my MIL
"Day one no eat. Day two no eat. Day three eat."
And our 2yr old actually did this one week a while back. Day one he ate a bit during the day but no dinner. Day two he ate some breakfast then nothing all day, refusing dinner and only having a sip of water. We didn't make a fuss or try get him to eat anything different. Day three, he ate! Breakfast, lunch & dinner. Phew! (I was silently a little worried.)
