15 month old

Hi everyone, it is heartening to read the various experiences that parents have shared.

My daughter is 15 months old and has been receiving physiotherapy for the last 1 1/2 month. She wasn't able to sit unsupported till her first birthday. She now uses the walker as a support to stand but needs more physiotherapy to help her start walking.

The doctors told me she seems to have tactile defensiveness and oral sensitivity.
I did notice she doesn't like food sticking outside her mouth or on her fingers. My main worry is for the past 2 months she has been eating very poorly. She eats all textures but only a few bites. What foods can I offer her?
The doctor working with her said they first have to deal with her tactile issues and then go to the oral ones. But I'm worried she will start losing weight and fall sick due to poor eating habits.

How can I help her? Please share your suggestions.
