What did your toddler eat today?

(10 Posts)

Even better when having basically refused three meals they then wake up twice in the night starving. Doh!

Twelve, it's great when they scream for food and then mostly lick it clean before deciding they are done grin

DD is 18mo, so we're just hitting the very beginning of food being an interesting battleground, I think. It's the turning point from being a gannet who will eat anything that vaguely resembles food to being outragously picky!

thurlow how old is your wannabe? smile. If its any reassurance that's more than my 6yo eats some days but then she is probably a wole new thread...grin

Today DS was on fighting form.

Breakfast - 3 spoonfuls of wheatabix, then thought he saw me making toast so shouted and pushed it away. I didn't give him any toast.

Mid morning snack after toddler music class - blueberries, handful of Cheerios, half a piece of toast (gah!)

Lunch at nursery - refused most sandwich, allegdly ate tomato but a) I didn't send him in with any and b) he's never knowingly eaten it in his life. Ate a couple of strawberries and a ginger biscuit though.

Dinner. Screaming hungry. Ate half a fish finger, licked ketchup off the other 1.5 fishfngers and an assortment of sweet potato wedges. Scooped rest of ketchup out of bowl by hand. Wade cauliflower cheese around. Didn't ingest a single other solid.
Ate a yoghurt nicely.

Arrrggghh. 21 months and hard hard work.

5oz of cows milk
Honey nut cornflakes with milk
Falafals for lunch followed by a piece of cake
Liga biscuit
2 Quorn mozzarella and pesto escalopes with veg
8oz milk before bed

A lot less than she normally eats because she slept through her snack - and she is still skinny as a rake! (16 months)

Because I like these threads, they give me ideas and reassure me that, on a bad day, my wannabe toddler isn't eating less food than any baby ever

5oz milk when she woke up
1 Weetabix with milk
Biscuit and/or fruit at baby group, I assume (CM day today)
1 pate and cucumber sandwich (pate is her new love), some peas, and a few strawberries in yoghurt
4oz milk in the afternoon
Stole some homemade pizza off another mindees plate, apparently
Then for dinner, despite whining for food, deigned to eat just one scrambled egg and threw the veg and peach on the floor
5oz milk at bedtime
