Holly, 22 months, feeding problems

I would be very grateful if you would help me with my toddler (Hollly, 22 months) who has feeding problems. Holly has been a Gina baby since she was four days old. She is 13kg and 90cm tall. She is generally a healthy toddler and has eaten well until independence and self feeding started. She refuses to let me feed her most of the time. She is good with a spoon and fork and finger foods.

We have the same routine every day, and the food changes in that if she doesn't eat much protein or any protein at lunch I offer fish fingers at night with vegetables and/or soup, which she always eats. Her favourites are fish pie, fish fingers, green vegetables, my Gina soups like sweet potato and carrot to which I add red lentils into for protein, leek and potato soup and minestrone soup. I am not a confident cook, but I have 10 recipe books including all of Gina's books for guidance. But now I wonder whether there's any point in cooking all this food when it just gets refused anyhow.
