Brief Answer:
Don't worry if otherwise she is active and not having other symptoms

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking on this platform

I have gone through the query and do understand your concern.
I won't get overly worried for change in feeding pattern if otherwise she is active, passing urine/motion and does not have any other issues like fever, loose motion etc.
For this age the teething pattern is normal. I would suggest you to continue the multivitamin and iron supplementation.
Try frequent small feeds. You can give different variety of food like khichdi, sooji halwa, kheer, mashed apple cooked with milk etc. You can add sugar or salt for better palatability.
Transient change in feeding pattern is quite common and usually settles within few days.
Watch for any abnormal symptoms and if you notice any please consult your pediatrician.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.
