Re: 2yo slooooooow eater

I don't think slow eaters change. I have a 9 year old who is still a slow eater. Most nights I have to re-heat his dinner for him a few times. This is also with him being distraction free. There are times though he will gobble foods (like snack time) but for the most part its a process with him. I tried everything with him and just decided in the end to let him do it his way. Food is being eaten and he is happy. You also have to remember taking food away by a certain time COULD (not saying will) cause issues with eating. It may stress your child out or it may cause over or under eating. Just my from experience with my slow eater. I was afraid of him seeing me trying to change his comfortable routine as a punishment. I think what your doing now is good. Encouraging with a food she likes at the end.
