Well....? I am not asking what you DO NOT like being fed to your children, but rather what you would like...and I think many of you will see a vast difference of opinion in what some people find acceptable and others not. Nurseries/ childminders take such a bashing for their menu's and I would guess that 90% of what they serve is good.

Maybe it is just that not everyone has the same point of view?

Jam sanwiches!

GypsyMoth Wed 19-Oct-11 15:35:13

Or even 'sandwich'...... White bread too

Organic houmous on celery sticks with homemade wholemeal toast squares.

Possibly foie gras?

Something balanced is what I would want. I certainly wouldn't object to jam sandwiches. Fair enough if they were giving them a happy meal everyday. But I don't see a problem with the occasional jam sandwich or even a packet of crisps now and then.

must all ignore that wholemeal is bad for children!

As long as it's not strawberries/raspberries/figs which she is super allergic to, I don't actually care. But then she's only there one day a week so I can balance it out if necessary although have never had to.

Curry. Start 'em young! grin

AFuckingKnackeredWoman Wed 19-Oct-11 15:43:53

Greggs and fruitshoots

For giving me child free hours they could feed them mud for i care

ScaredTEECat Wed 19-Oct-11 15:44:12

Pizza, soda and chocolate.

Is that wrong?

Ormirian Wed 19-Oct-11 15:45:33

A hot meal so I don't have to. And not too much crap.

Apart from that I don't care.

ScaredTEECat Wed 19-Oct-11 15:45:56

Exactly what I was thinking AFuckingKnackeredWoman. He's been off all week with D&V and we just moved house and have total chaos (but not Chaos, who better go finish her other thread) around me.

I was so looking forward to childfree days to get the house sorted. sob

Astronaut food - dehydrated ice cream in foil sachets, minced up soup in a toothpaste tube, that sort of thing. To prepare them for the space-age future when that's what we'll be eating.

WillbeanChariot Wed 19-Oct-11 15:50:38

Anything they could get him to eat. That's what I feed him, on medical advice. He often has tinned spaghetti followed by custard. So shoot me.

TimothyClaypoleLover Wed 19-Oct-11 15:50:44

A balanced diet including the odd treat of cake/biscuits/chocolate. So long as its not turkey twizzlers, fruit shoots and ginsters. If you ban certain types of food they will only want it more and could end up with food issues as it sounds like many people on these threads have.

FunnyHaHaPeculiar Wed 19-Oct-11 15:52:20

radical idea - feed your own blimmin kids! smile

whackamole Wed 19-Oct-11 15:52:26

I trust our nursery to give my children a balanced diet. I have seen their menu, I know they probably deviate from it on occasion, but so long as my children aren't blatantly starving when they come home or putting on weight despite me not feeding them I'm really not bothered.

Jam sandwiches, pizza, cereal, bring it on! They get far fewer biscuits there than at home!

And I don't care either if they get twizzlers, fruit shoots and ginsters. They are there for 3 days a week, they wouldn't feed them that every day they are there so once in a while is fine.

GhoulishGlendaFestersAgain Wed 19-Oct-11 15:54:48

Homemade filled pasta of course

Peachy Wed 19-Oct-11 15:56:45

A jam sandwich is fine: better an eaten jam sandwich than a thrown away almost-anything-else, at least once a week

Wilbean nah won't shoot you, been same for us here- ds1 was treated for an eating disorder at ten (now seems well thank goodness), ds4 picky and being assessed for ASD.

What else- pasta is always good, easy way to get veg etc into kids; beans on toast fine for a lunch; fish fingers are fine, otherwise what we eat he does- shepher'd pie, ordinary pie, tonight beef and gravy baguete and salad, quiche, sausage casserole chilli, curry

y'know, normal food, teh catering OK versions of what we eat at home ( without omelettes and soupd basically- soup = toddler nightmare)

MumblingAndBloodyRagDoll Wed 19-Oct-11 15:57:56

Whtever she'll eat! Pasta, fish fingers, ham, bread, salad, cheese, rice, jam sandwiches, peanut butter, oatcakes, crackers, sausages, chicken, beans, cake, jelly, you! grin
