Oh yes Christina, I have been there! I can totally relate to your emotions. My daughter was exactly the same until she turned 3. She would barely eat 2-3 spoons of food and drank only milk. She used to fall ill very often as a result. Her doctor too said that it was normal and she would change with age. We started giving her Pediasure as recommended on the pack. Very soon things turned around and she took interest in her food. We are not sure if Pediasure had anything to do with it or not. Now she eats reasonably well and I am a happier mom. So, all I can tell you is not to be disheartened. Your daughter soon will start taking interest in food start gaining weight. You could try giving her Pediasure with milk as they provide extra calories.
