My daughter is of 9 years. She has a swallowing problem. She keeps on chewing her food whatsoever she gets either it's her favorite or not. Her most of the time spends in eating & gets less time for other activities. She speed in her other activities is also slow. I'm very worried about her that how she is going to spend her whole life.
It normally is by habbits c that while eating she is not busy in anything else don't force her to eat let her be at dinning table only while eating and no distractions like tv games, if she doesn't eat don't force she will eat on her own when hungary as a mother I think you will have to have patience, if she has lost weight or inactive then of course you should contact a paediatrician.
