Thanks for the great tips!
She is indeed very healthy, highest percentile for her height! And extremely active! Its not really her health I am stressing about, I am concerned of her becoming a picky eater in general,I want her to be open minded and try new things.
She also is very much like your grandkids Kadesma...if she sees someone else eating something, she wants THAT....most of the time, only time that doesnt happen is when I infact want her to eat what I am eating...sigh...too smart for her own good! But I think I will try just putting things casualy like a platter of veggies and see if she explores!
And GB my dd is exactly like yours, I finally get her to take a bite and try something new, she always loves it and eats it all...but the next time she wont eat it again! And I have to start all over.
I guess all kids receive the same memo!

I'm a bad mom. Had no fear of peanut butter for any of them.
Thank goodness because they all request it. Esp the 4 yr old that used to only eat meat..... now only eats veggies.... no pasta unless its tomato sauce..... wish hew would eat soup.....
But he will be different next week.
My point is don't fret.... They always turn out just fine. Physically anyway.... the mental problems are my fault....

Oh, and my son went through some strange phases. One phase was he didn't like pizza anymore and the other phase was he couldn't eat hamburgers anymore...the hamburger made him gag. He's over both of those! I am only glad one phase stuck with him - he quit drinking Coke and switched to water - - - basically overnight! That was about 4 years ago or so and water is still the main drink of choice.

Lego girl did that...
Last year she only ate the cheese and toppings off her pizza.
This weekend she would take the top off as usual...
and would only eat the crust.
I give UP!!!!!!

With 5 kids I've seen all kind of things.

There is nothing wrong with eating soup even 3 times a day.

why is she on it? health reasons?
if the dr said use soy for a certain reason I would....
but otherwise I have no problems with cow milk.
I think these days paranoia gets the best of even doctors, just so they can cover thier butts.

Why is she on soy milk? Is she alergic to regular milk?

As long as you donot force her to eat anything in particular, she will come around.

as far as frosting goes I hate frosting, hate with pation.
