My one year old daughter is cutting 4 teeth and has been extremely fussy with her food and won’t eat. She will eat yoghurt and weet bix but that is it. I’m still dishing up her vegetables and meat at dinner but she won’t eat it and same at lunch she won’t eat fruit or a sandwich. Should I go back and purée her food to see if she will eat it that way? She is drinking heaps of water and milk but as a result in not having a full tummy she won’t sleep through at night help please!

  • My son does exactly the same when he is teething won’t eat anything! I usually make him a milkshake with fruit & Icecream. It’s the only thing he will touch and fills him up for a bit. Some weeks he has lived on them. Once they come through he goes back to normal so don’t worry too much just give her what ever she will eat.



  • poor little thing must hurt to bite and chew
    so mash and mince,or home-made juice with veg added is good too
    stewed apples and custard, ice-cream and jelly,scramble eggs,soft food to do
    or fruit juice ice blocks cool her gums and are delicious it is true
