    Hi Gabby,

    When you say your child won't eat, does she actually eat nothing, or is she just a picky eater who turns her nose up at most of the stuff you put in front of her?  If she is truly not eating, she needs to see her pediatrician, who can see if there's something physically wrong, and if she's eating nothing, I suspect there is.  If she'd just a picky eater and will only eat a few things,  I wouldn't worry too much right now.  Toddlers have very small stomachs and survive quite well on several small meals or snacks a day.  Their stomachs are only the size of a fist.  When she does eat, just make sure she's eating something nutritious, like fruit, cheese, vegetables or peanut butter, which is full of protein.  Unless there is something physically or psychologically wrong, children will not starve themselves.

    Thank you momsnagpad
    She's not eating at all she's just drinking water and milk.  Usualy she's a good eater I will take your advice and call her doctor in the morning, at list my mind will be at rest.

    Thank you very much for that

    It has happened to my toddler (2.5 years). The doctor was a waste of time. After a few days it was back to normal. I hope it does for you. They are moody, difficult, they test you. keep your nerve...
