    Help!

    My 2 1/2 year old daughter refuses to eat. She eats virtually nothing (perhaps a strawberry adn a yoghurt) all day every day and is painfully thin. I feel that her lack of nutrition is affecting her behaviour and development. I am looking for a paediatrician that specialises in this sort of area. Any recommendations?

    We go to Dr. Lauren Bramley in Central. She's a GP, but she co-wrote the book "Baby' s Table", which is about baby nutrition. She also has a pediatrition on staff. I am never rushed whan I go in and she has an exam room just for kids. The office number is 2877-6068. Good luck!

    Hi,
    I went through the same thing with my son and I know how stressful it is when your kid doesnt eat.

    We go to Dr. Thondup who is really relaxed and helped us. Good Luck.

    I would also suggest you look at Penelope Leach's book "Your Baby and Child: From Birth to Five". She has a wonderful section about toddler's who "won't eat anything" and about how little they really need to eat to survive and thrive and the weird "diets" they sometimes choose.

    I did have a neighbor whose girl was very thin and pale and a bit listless (age about three). They began to give her a big spoonful of honey every day and that seemed to "kick-start" her metabolism and her appetite. By the time she was 4, she was like another child. She is now a blooming eight year-old.
