It is important to establish a healthy diet at this age. Do not give in and only gives cheese curls and biscuits. Children often prefer certain foods and you do not have to force anything down, but is very important that you limit the options and ensure that she only eats healthy food. The weight gain needs to be evaluated by regular weighing at your clinic and documenting it on your clinic card. If your child is otherwise well and developing normally, I will not be unduly concerned.
