If you are forcing three years old to eat against her wish longifen or any other drug is not going to be useful. Look if she is really ill, if so clinical examination by a pediatrician will find out the reason for vomiting and will be easy to treat. If child is playful, happy as usual, then you need to check your expectations. Children will have increased appetite during growth spurt. At other times most of the children fail to meet parent's expectations. At such times it is better to know children have their own mind and it is better to respect their wish.
