Do not force your daughter to eat. She must join the family at all mealtimes. Put her food in front of her and don't look at her and don't say a word about her eating. Just ignore her and join in conversation with the family around the table.Let her feed herself. If she does not eat take the food away after the meal and don't say anything about her not eating. After a while she will start eating, just relax and keep everything peaceful at mealtimes.
