Q.

Eating

Hello Prof,
Me again...last question: My 3yr4month old little girl has seems to be eating less. SHe used to have a heathy good appetite but now she pushes her food around and eats less of it. Like it is a nuisance to have to eat. Is this a normal thing? Her teeth are beautifully fine so it isnt that...and she isnt sick.

Children of this age often go through periods when they have a poor appetite for a while.You mention that your daughter is well. She will eat what she needs every day.Once she is through this stage she will start eating again.Continue to put her food in front of her at all mealtimes. Do not watch her eat.
