my dd has just turned 3 she has always been a fussy eater from a baby and is small for her age.
she is healthy and has lots of energy also a very happy girl
she eats the following on a normal day :-

breakfast - cereal,yoghurt,banana and fruit pouch

lunch - 2 bits of toast with marmite on, then crisps then fruit pouch or yog

tea - either pasta,mas or potatoe smiles
with either chicken or fish plus veg

she has greatly improve over the last few months in the quantity that she eats even though her diet isnt that varied.

is there anything wrond with her eating the same foods

sounds like a pretty healthy diet

Most children eat very similar foods most days, or in any given month.

DS has the same breakfast and lunch pretty much every single day.

My son loves to help cook - and then really enjoys eating the results. Have you thought about, for instance, cooking pizza with her - and letting her put the toppings on etc - possibly quite limited to start with in terms of what you might put on eg some cubed cooked chicken with the tomato and cheese (will she normally eat cheese?) and gradually add more things.

Doesn't sound too bad a diet though...
