Have you thought of adding some fruit to his porridge?

My hubby made a casserole and I tried at lunchtime but nope. So he will have a bigger meal at lunch IF he likes it

I just worry he's not getting his 5 a day. I'm lucky for him to have 1 or 2 a day

I think it's also worth bearing in mind that toddlers are much fussier eaters than babies and they want to show that they can make decisions (i.e. refuse things you offer them). It's maddening but they are very unlikely to starve. Lots of toddlers don't eat a huge amount. Unless he is actually underweight I really wouldn't worry about how much he eats from day to day. In my experience the worst thing you can do is show them that it's a big deal (easier said than done!).

I think they are tired at teatime sometimes, I really wouldn't worry. At this age they are very good at regulating their appetites.

If you are worried, could you make lunch into a bigger meal than tea do that you're not worried if he doesn't eat much later?

My 2yo is turning into a fussy eater I think and I just wanted opinions on is it normal and is his diet below ok

Breakfast is porridge he eats fine no prob
Morning snack a banana again fine

Lunch is either spaghetti hoops with toast, beans with toast, cheesy beans with toast or cheesy toast with beans. Again all fine

Dinner time sometimes chips which is fine. Pasta is usually fine but if I add veg sometimes he's ok with it and other times he just refuses it completely. It's hit and miss. We make casseroles etc and again it's hit and miss if he eats or not. Why is dinner such a hit and miss? Can never tell if he will eat it or not it's annoying

He had a yogurt throughout the day also
