How do I to get a 17-month old to eat?

She had been eating, but has decided to stop.

Offer her a variety of different foods. She may be bored with the foods you are giving her. Try something different. Things that are easy to eat ,or finger foods, so that she can feed herself. Give her milk shakes to drink so at least her body's taking some vitamins etc.

Offer her meals on a regular schedule. If she doesn't want to eat, don't make a big deal of it. The last thing you want to do is teach her that she can manipulate and control YOU over food. She'll eat when she's hungry.

Honestly, I wouldn't really worry about it. My daughter often went through phases of eating like crazy, and then eating virtually nothing at all. So long as they are receiving plenty of fluids I really wouldn't worry too much about it. They WILL eat, eventually. They all do. Good luck!

Give your child three items on her place - 1 thing she absolutely loves to eat & 2 things that she's shying away from.
