Your 2-year-old is still a picky eater, but she's watching you like a hawk so she can be just like you. Providing her with nutritious foods and eating well yourself are two of the best ways to get her to eat right. Be aware that she's picking up your bad habits as well as your good ones.

 
Your child is growing much more slowly than last year, so she really doesn't need as much food as you might think she does. She's also extremely opinionated about what she'll eat (and where she'll eat it and when she'll eat it, as well as in what bowl she'll eat it). She may continue to "binge" on favored foods for a while, only to suddenly reject them later.
