Is my baby eating enough?
It's is quite natural for parents to worry about whether their child is getting enough food, especially if they refuse to eat sometimes or get labelled as a "fussy eater" The trick is not to worry about what your child eats in a day, or if they don't eat everything at mealtimes.
