Hello, at that age, children are usually more curious and playful and are easily distracted, it might not be she's not eating but she prefers doing other things. You have to be patient and device means to get her interested in her food, also you may need to adjust her feeding, she may not need to eat everything at a sitting, she may prefer eating in bits. Experiment with other healthy foods. The cough might be because she doesn't like or want what she's giving.
