2 year old won't eat anything

Postby Jerlene » August 5th, 2012, 2:28 am

My 2 year old niece won't eat anything but snacks. She refuses to eat any REAL food and her parents don't really care what she eats as long as she eats. How do I go about getting her to eat real food, other than scolding her, taking away her snacks and sending her home?

I would suggest looking up recipes to try to make healthy food taste more like a snack. She cannot continue eating this way or there could be problems with her growth or other health issues.

Try smoothies. They are sort of like ice cream and you can hide veggies in them and you can not tell. Add a few pieces of broccoli to your yogurt and strawberries and blend away.
