I actually feel quite upset that I can't get a handle on this. I can't afford to buy fish and meat for every day of the week, and don't think it is necessary either, but DD won't eat pasta or noodles, and I run out of ideas. I like to think DH earns okay money but with the price of everything going up it is hard to feed 5 of us at the moment.
I don't understand the problem with them having their tea at 4.30pm. They have tea between 4-5pm depending on what they are having and how long it takes me to make it. Very rarely they have milk/toast before bath time but they don't need anything else. They eat loads for tea.
