Hi linnet;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Normally most of children are picky eaters at least at this particular age of 3-5 yrs do not worry ;the reason is they are busy playing and get chocolates;jellies form the elders due to affection and that most of the time these things fulfills their appetite.You can do one thing like keep an incentive of chocolate or any favorite fruit;chocolate;or drink if the child has proper food and this should work.Also care should be taken that he/she does not have anything form outside so that he /she will be hungry and demand food .It is a tricky thing but you can try and do not worry your child will always find way to get the necessary food and nutrition also she will be healthy and gain weight do try as advised.
