I've just cooked a lovely and healthy meal, from scratch! And DS won't touch it. Yes, the bread is homemade.

He is 3.
The reason it's too, red.

What is in the cup?

NarcyCow Tue 15-Mar-16 17:35:03

Put it on different plates.

Or give it to me, I'm starving and it looks lovely.

NeedACleverNN Tue 15-Mar-16 17:35:10

That is a lot of red to me too grin

SpaceDinosaur Tue 15-Mar-16 17:36:54

Bloody delicious. Put it on non red plates!

Is that prawns?!??

Ginmakesitallok Tue 15-Mar-16 17:39:11

Looks OK to me. What's the bread?

Freeandsinglewater Tue 15-Mar-16 17:40:12

Yes, it's prawn cocktail with a nice salad, and homemade bread with sun dried tomatoes in it.

Inside the cup is toasted seeds.

Well if your in the southwest....... And I do hate to see food wasted.

You can try changing the plates. Also the portion sizes are too huge, he may be put off /not hungry if it's too much at once.

SavoyCabbage Tue 15-Mar-16 17:42:14

It's far too big I think.

WorraLiberty Tue 15-Mar-16 17:42:42

It looks gorgeous

But size-wise, it's the amount I would eat for dinner.

Perhaps the amount is a bit off putting for a 3 year old?

GibbousHologram Tue 15-Mar-16 17:43:32

Would he normally eat it? I'd rip your arm off for it but only the bread would stand any chance of getting past my 3yo. And even that would be a risk as it's got bits in.

Ifailed Tue 15-Mar-16 17:45:29

That's for a 3 yo? far, far too much.

PirateJones Tue 15-Mar-16 17:45:30

Looks lovely.grin
Making my hungry, but about half the size would be about right for a 3 year old, with more if he asks.

Freeandsinglewater Tue 15-Mar-16 17:45:53

Yes, normally he will eat like a pig. I've put it on a different and smaller plate.


So one nice meal free to a hungry MN.

mamapants Tue 15-Mar-16 17:46:32

I wouldn't eat that either it doesn't look appetising to me. But everyone else seems to think it looks nice

HermioneJeanGranger Tue 15-Mar-16 17:46:44

It looks delicious, but I wouldn't expect a 3yo to eat it. Could you half the portion size and separate the food out so he can try things individually?

ctjoy103 Tue 15-Mar-16 17:48:59

Are you serious op? Is that portion size what he usually eats? Both plates? That would be lunch and dinner for me.

Allalonenow Tue 15-Mar-16 17:49:29

Put it on a white plate, half a portion of it, call it some different name, forget about the bread and the seeds for now.

I love prawn cocktail smile

BillSykesDog Tue 15-Mar-16 17:51:30

The prawn stuff looks lovely. That bread looks rank though. Wouldn't touch it myself, looks like you could hammer nails with it.

Freeandsinglewater Tue 15-Mar-16 17:52:12

hermine he's eaten this meal before.

Now he's told me he's not hungry.
I give up, he's been a little shit all day, by NOT listening. It took 3 hours to put his toys away this morning, and generally being jerk/ass.

It's too early for wine?

MinecraftyMum Tue 15-Mar-16 17:54:18

Since when has defrosting prawns and chopping up a lettuce been 'cooking'? confused grin

TakesTwoToTango Tue 15-Mar-16 17:55:34

Uh oh! My ds will also often eat large portions of allowed, but if he ever totally refused to eat, we know the vomiting will commence within a few hours...

Ginmakesitallok Tue 15-Mar-16 17:58:02

Minecrafty - saying what others are thinking but too polite to say. (Op- you need a decent bread recipe)

Iggi999 Tue 15-Mar-16 17:59:53

Well my toddler is currently eating crisps for tea as I couldn't take the crying anymore so I cannot in all conscience advise.
