Toddler spitting

My 2 year old daughter loves eating raw carrots, apples, grapes, raisins etc but she chews a bit and then spits them out. She''s been doing this from the beginning and I don''t know how to break the habit. She has also recently become very fussy about her main meals, refusing to eat vegetables or any " lumpy"  food. Do you have any advice for me?

Hi Rachael,
This forum is actually for eating disorders, and your toddler is reflecting something that looks like food refusal, which is quite common at her age. I suggest that you approach a paediatric nutritionist of your paediatrition to address your daughter's nutritional needs and problematic behaviour. Don't panic, but you want to get your daughter back on track with a good relationship with food as soon as possible.
