8 year old doesnt eat

I have an 8 year old daughter who doesn' t eat! She doesnt eat her sandwiches I send with her to school, made with whatever spread she wants and the way she wants! All she wants to eat is " 2 minute noodles" . She also doesnt eat any fruit or vegetables! Only rice, meat and potatoes! What can I do?

Hi Stressed Mom
My daughter is the same, I have however managed to get her to pack her own lunches and I only supervise. She does not eat bread, so I offer her healthy biscuts (provita or ryevita), a small block of cheese and then fruit and veg. She is allowed to include a small treat, which she is allowed to eat once she has finished the rest. Goodluck :-)
