My Daughter is not eating

I am a concerned mother of a 2 year old girl, my problem is that she is not eating at all, she eat only 4-5 spoons and i took her to the doctor but they said nothing is wrong with her, am i over reacting over nothing serious

Sometimes children of this age have a poor appetite for a few days at a time. As long as there is nothing obvious that you can notice that is wrong with her,there is no need to worry. If she is losing weight or if she appears to be ill then you should take her to be seen by a doctor.

Its Tebogo again recently she''s started to eat but only if we force her, and she hasn''t regained her weight back yet but what i really want to know is should i still take her to the doctor or maybe should i wait for a while.
