My little girl is 18 months and has never shown much interest in food. She is a very fussy eater and won't let me spoon feed her anything so I am forever trying different finger foods. She goes through days where she hardly eats anything. Most of the time she won't even open her mouth to try the food and other times she takes it and spits it back out. How can I encourage her to eat? Any advice on getting her to eat would be greatly appreciated as this worries me so much.

Apart from the suggestion given above, if you are feeling helpless and have tried all sorts of methods, e.g. BLW and etc. you can let your kid attend picky eater therapy at KKH. MY friend's daugther was a very picky eater too and it affected her speech development. During the therapy, specialist will guide you on how to introduce different textures to your baby, as some babies refused to chew due to they prefer pureed food. The specialist will access your baby's condition first and guide accordingly. If you can get a referral letter from polyclinic to go for the therapy, one session costs about $40.
