Theo had a lightly buttered croissant and a pot of fruit this morning as I was feeling lazy.. he usually has fruit porridge though which consists of ground up rolled oats (I plonk a load in a blender then keep them in a take away box) mixed into one of those cans of pure fruit, zapped in a microwave for 30 seconds until all stiff and gooey and then I add milk till it goes nice and soft... *takes a breath!*
Think I'm doing ok with the portion sizes, but for some reason ds refuses to eat his lunch (this has been happening for +-3weeks). He use have breakfast at 8am and then lunch at 12pm but lately he will only eat a third of his lunch and then be starving by 3pm.
ds is 16mo too - but also has been on and off his meals for the past few weeks or so. But it could be the heat or teeth. One day he eats like a horse - others - he picks. Today he had 6 oz milk at 6.30 then 3 prunes and 2 squares of toast for brekkie, small snack at nursery and a tiny bit of pudding for lunch. So he'll be blooming starving by the time he wakes from his nap.
I just go with the flow and kind of judge whether he's due a snack to keep him going and have a later tea or give him nothing and bring tea forward.
