And you know it's affecting her behavior.
What can you do?
An extremely picky eater who refuses everything she's served or offered.

Is there anything she would eat? I’d just give that food over and over. Can you do pediasure type drinks? Or smoothies filled with nutrients?

Motrin and antibiotics fixed this pretty quickly for us.

Until we got there I would literally spoon feed my kid and bribe them with dessert.

Barely anything interests her at this point.

It’s likely a medicine side effect, talk to her doctor about switching.

Take to a feeding therapist (speech therapist) and that will slowly help.

Does she have constipation issues? That can be the cause for that sometimes. My son had the same problem, but when I give him mirilax and he’s not constipated he finally eats a little more.

Might sound counterintuitive but removing the pressure around food can be a real benefit to helping your kid actually eat.
My son is extremely picky next level. And when I stress out about his food intake he feels it and eats less. (Even when I think I’m hiding it we’ll)

I know it’s super hard to not stress over it tho. I try to plan ahead and make mealtime fun but super simple so it’s less stressful.

Another good tip is increasing the nutrients in the foods they do accept (for example Barilla makes Protein pasta instead of regular, protein drinks and snacks so they stay full and so on)
