Kid wont eat

Answered 1 month ago

I have a 5 year who has never eaten. She has probably eaten a weeks worth of food in her whole life, for the first 3 years she wouldnt even drink water. I have no idea how she is still alive. She is the size if a 3 year old. Ive been to every doctor/specialist you can imagine... spend my life baking (hiding veggies in everything), and she wont eat. Its at the point that i am photographing what she is offered so if she dies of starvation I wont go to jail for starving her. I have two other kids who eat normally. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING, MY WHOLE LIFE IS AROUND GETTING HER TO EAT SOMETHING... Im almost at the point of just letting her die.. The only thing keeping her alive is sustagen but she will only have one a day, if that. She wont even eat lollies, pizza, nuggets, fries, ice cream, any other junk food.. I would love if she ate junk or lollies coz it would at least be something.... For those that say milk, or is she drinking too much milk, no at the most its 250ml a day.. sometimes she eats a apple but with no skin...WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSE TO DO?!!

Have an answer?

Maybe she has a sensory processing disorder? I would definitely ask for a referral to a child psychologist and a paediatrician.

Maybe try sending her to a friend's for a playdate and lunch without you there? Have them serve her with no expectations and just see what happens. Has she started school yet?
