Hello. ..my two year old is not ready to eat anything. ..she eats chocolates and drinking milk. I tried giving her everything in all forms yet no improvement...Help me

show her what she likes eg. songs cartoon etc n try feeding. kids tend to eat only when their likings are shown to them

stop chocolates at once and do a deworm and she should eat well but please force her a few days

Thnk u Prithvi Balaji. Today onwards I will stop chocolates.

step 1. throw away all chocolates and sweets from your house
step 2. she will still not eat and for one or two days, she will raise hell. be prepared
step 3. keep offering food regularly. if she refuses, let her know food is available and she can have it whenever she wants. don't force feed
step 4. after hunger strike she will succumb.

about 2 to 4 days will be very difficult because I have heard that foods like chocolates often cause an addiction in babies. be strong and train her now before she becomes too stubborn to leave all this

Chocolates are high in sugar and give a feeling of being full for a short time. Then when the child feels hungry the brain again asks for the same sugar rush. It is best to avoid chocolates all thru the day and keep it limited to certain times only. A two year old needs zero to one glass of milk. If the child drinks milk close to meal times then again they are full and will refuse foods. Avoid milk atleast two to three hours before a meal.
