We have medical reasons for Milo. He has a g-tube because we couldn't get him to eat from the very beginning. He still has no interest...really, almost none at all. So, I DO understand how scary it is! Milo is just on liquids into his tube until he decides to eat.
I know that a lot of people try olive oil. My 2 year-old isn't FTT, but his tonsils were so bad that he almost didn't eat. So that he didn't KNOW that we were fattening up anything, and so that we didn't have to add extra sauce to everything, we cooked his veggies in olive oil. No very different flavor from steamed or raw veggies, so it didn't seem to do anything to his palate. He likes avocado, too. There are lots of healthy fats to incorporate into anything she DOES want to eat! I think that you're doing a great job in a frustrating situation! Keep it up! Hopefully, your 'c' group kids will outgrow this!!! In the meantime, (((HUGS))). I know how scary and frustrating it is!
