My baby won’t eat. She is 16 months old

Anu

I don’t know why she is not eating properly nowadays. She was a good eater until 15 months. And now she loves to eat snacks rather food. I am worried she will lose weight if this thing continues. What should I do?

    Limit the snacks, and milk for an hour or more before meal times so they are hungry, otherwise they will be full on snacks. And offer milk or water after dinner. These are things I still do with my 3 yo. But they eat when they are hungry, and some weeks will be less food than other weeks. Toddlers are busy, too busy to stop and focus on things, but they do eat when they are hungry.

    My LO doesn't eat well when she is teething. During those times, she only will really eat snacks or preferred foods. Try making her smoothies with fruits and veggies to get those nutrients and see if it gets better soon.
