Eight year old won't eat dinner


Food question. My 8 year old daughter hardly ever eats her dinner. For the first 6 years of her life I made too much a deal about it catering to her so she would eat. Now we just offer her healthy options at every meal and if she doesn't eat her dinner let it go. Of course, no snack after dinner if she doesn't eat her meal. But I have to admit I still worry she is not eating enough. She is petite for her age but she is consistently growing 2 inches each year. Can it be possible that she just doesn't need much food? Or is this still a control issue and she is winning?!
