Your toddler is feeling nice and full because she is still drinking 500ml of Isomil at night. She probably is eating at the creche as well so is not hungry in the evenings. There is nothing that you can give her to improve her appetite. It seems that she simply is not hungry because of the reasons I have listed above. Do not try and force her to eat. She is old enough to join the family at supper time now. Put the food in front of her and let her feed herself. She will watch how the rest of the family eats and will soon start eating by herself. Do not be concerned if she leaves some food behind on her plate. She will eat what she needs.
