Answer:
You really need to discourage this habit as children eating with gadgets don't focus on what they are eating. So they not only miss the pleasure of taste, texture but also the satiation point, i. e. when they are full. They may tend to overeat/under eat. Few suggestions are Fix meal timings & place. Serve food on the dining table only. Don't let her bring any gadget or watch T. V. while having food. For few times she may go hungry but you have to be strict about it. Instead make her have meals with family and try to make those times pleasurable for her. You may all sit down together and share some jokes or talk about topics of her interest. Hope it helps.
