she used to eat so well everything really, she used to love strawberries and bananas and would much on brocolli carrot stick califlower etc.
now her eattings gone down hill. she won't eat fruit, and turn her nose up at thimgs she used to like, i think we have gone wrong as we have started to let her eat biscuits and cakes etc and she rather have those than say a banana.
so i need to start again.
i think she would go for finger food ideas as she likes to do things for herself.
try giving her a choice of dinner or a sandwich and if she eats neither let her eat neither but give her no treat. Obviously you cant starve her so then after a while playing offer her the choice again. if dd won't eat i put her down from the table and we carry on eating our dinner, she often plays a while and then comes back within 5 minutes and eats something. if that doesn't work then wait a little while till she is hungrier and offer choices of dessert, banana or yoghurt.
a bit of crap is ok when balanced by good stuff. dd is often given biscuits at play groups/classes mid morning so when at home i still do this as snack time but don't really encorporate biscuits etc into lunch/dinner time incase she forgoes dinner for snack as you say.
