i agree, also shes not eating enough iron rich foods or even veges to get enough vitamins to sustain her. she needs to start taking some EFA's because shes on the low fat milk, kids at this age need fat, but i have heard of alot of peds and WIC etc reccomending 2% after 2.

Oh yeah, the ped. also told her that instead of feeding her fruits and veggies, she could just drink pedialyte five times a day.
so just give her fruit flavouring, and artificial dyes instead of real food?!?
