They didn't eat their breakfast,thinking I would back down and let them snack, but we didnt, then for lunch (after the swimming baths) they wanted a kentucky) instead they had a homemade sandwich sat on the grass. No snacks in between.

Dinner, breaded chicken breasts with fresh veg.

Tomorrow morning it's peanut butter on toast and dinner is bacon, mushroom and potato fritatta with fresh home made bread

DH has been moaning to one of the barmaids at the local and she told me she gave him what for and said what I was doing was bloody good, he apparantly went in saying 'they are kids, they should be able to eat crap' shock thank god she's a mate of mine, don't know what else she said, but it's so far worked, he's backed me to the hilt all day.

Whaddy think?

Good on you!

Thanks peachy.

So far so good, but, I think we are really going to suffer as on mumsnetter mentioned, when the distinct lack of sugar kicks in.
