My 25 months old daughter has a habit of watching TV and having food. Our pediatrician has suggested not to show TV and give food. So now I have started to make her sit along with us and have food together. But she is not eating any solids since 3 days as I am not showing her TV. I also tired all her favorite food but she is still not interested in having food. Only drinking milk. What should I do now. Please suggest something. I am afraid she will go weak and lose weight if she doesn't eat.

Hi, since your daughter has the habit of watching tv and having food, you shouldn't stop it suddenly and cannot expect your two year old child to obey. You should reduce the tv time slowly and gradually without in such a way that she does not know about it.

Hey anon, have patience. My son too had this issue but now he eats without any screen time. In the beginning it's bit tough. They will reject, they will create a fuss but will slowly realise that eating time is screen free time and will start eating

Try talking on the favorite subject.. as in any fav animal / bird or cartoon character....

Sonam patel Thanks for your advice. Just want to know is it okay if she doesn't eat anything for days together?
