my child appetite has decreased

I have a 13mos. old daughter who, over the past 3 days has "gagged" everytime I give her foodshe refuses to eat.  She is drinking and stooling fine, and our family doctor says not to worry, but how long do I let this go?  She is normally a playful happy little girl and is now fussy and over-dramatic.  Her strep culture came back negative, and I'm a loss.  Please help.

If she just recently got over an illness, her appetite may still be off. Suggest giving her the foods she likes and not forcing her to eat. Relax and try not making a fuss. Hopefully this will pass if her appetite decreased from not feeling well.
