    During the first 2 years of life and baby’s main source of food is milk!!!! Until your child is around 2 they don’t usually eat all that much solid food and their main food should still be milk! She will get there just keep sitting her at her high chair when you are having dinner at the table with her and give her chopped up bits of what your having as long as it’s chopped up (I use scissors to chop all food) and make it soft foods nothing hard

    What's the rush ? Nutritionally she is fine.

    She checks the container- yeah right. She can read at 13 months.

    Listen to her and what she needs.

    Put some cheerios on her tray .And relax.

    Put table food in front of her. If she won't eat it take it away. Ignore the tantrums that will follow. I totally guarantee that a couple of missed meals will change her mind. At present she is controlling you. You have to reverse that situation for both your sakes.

    Bear in mind that you will not be withholding food. It's her refusing to eat it.
