Pediatrician 's  Response

your 18 months old child should be weighing a little bit more

so improve her nutritional intake with plenty of calorie and nutrition rich foods like milk , egg etc

it is quiet normal for kids of this age group to have intermittent episodes of normal eating with poor eating

i advise you to encourage the baby to eat good food by providing example

take care
