This thread is making me feel much better about DS' diet - thank god other people's children are also picky and inconsistent!

Today was a v good eating day:
Breakfast - mix of dry Shreddies, Cheerios, raisins
Snack - homemade banana flapjack
Lunch - jam sarnie, quavers, grapes (lunchbag as out for the day)
Snack - lollipop (treat won while out!)
Dinner - fajitas (he only had cheese, peppers and cucumber in his wrap) and fruit salad for pud (only ate apple and melon)

He's just turned 4

My lo had marmite on toast for breakfast with a apple juice, lunch he had a marmite and cheese sandwich (he loves marmite) with an apple and some blackcurrant juice. At nursery he snacked on raisins, breadsticks and grapes. Dinner we had a BBQ so he had a burger, corn on the cob and more fresh juice.
