Sounds absolutely fine for a single day, but how restricted are we talking about? Is that everything he'll eat?

That's fine but would suggest offering fruit/veg only as snacks, doesn't really need poms of biscuits

thanks all - the biscuits and poms were what was offered at playgroup so wouldnt usually give these. he does eat other stuff e.g homemade bolignese, eggs and cucumber!

Remove starches at snack time. Stick to fruit and if he refuses, no snack!!!
I don't give my fussy 3.5yo a snack between lunch and dinner. The other night she ate ALL her chicken in rice (which is probably the first time ever since she started this fussiness).

Sounds brilliant compared to my 6 year old very fussy son.
Wouldn't be concerned in the slightest.

Sounds good to me. Best bit of HV advice- don't look at what your toddler eats in a day, look at it over a week.

Drop the carny snacks, cut up veg- just keep offering it.

That's waaaaaaay more variety than my 2.3yo DD2 eats. Pasta, hummous, cheddar -wowzers. I can only dream of the day she eats that grin We did BLW and she ate everything. What happened? sad

Sounds similar to 3.3 dd so seems normal, but she is picky!
