Hey hun could I have a private post please, my 3 year old daughter is skinny. Some people wonder if I feed her or not. She doesn’t eat well. I regulary prepare food for her but she refuses to eat. She will literally only eat a little bit and then say she is full. She is very energetic. People say she looks malnourished. My family even joke about it. It upsets me so much, because I give her food, but she refuses to eat properly. My GP was useless. He said it’s normal, but I don’t believe it. I don’t know how I can get her to eat. I would like to get some advice from mum’s who have been through this stage with their kids

    My 4 year old is the same. Her bmi is 0! She’s a picker rather than a sit down for a big meal kind of girl so I try to offer her snacks in between meals like bananas, cereal bars, etc and then give her a small portion at meal times to make sure she eats- if I give her too much she won’t eat it. She eats much better at nursery or her friend’s houses when she’s with other kids who eat!

    My daughter is sooooo skinny! She is 9 and finding clothes to fit her is a struggle😕 she eats like a bird and is on the underweight section for her height. It stresses me out to no end BUT she is healthy, energetic and most importantly happy. I am coming to terms that she is just going to be very tall and slender lol x

    My theory was with my kids was as long as I kept offering them food at meal times etc then there not much else I can do , a child won’t starve there self’s and generally they will eat when hungry so as long as food was available they did start to eat xxx
