I've recently started giving 18mo dd snacks as she gets moody mid morning/afternoon. dp thinks I'm giving her too much food. I have a screwed up relationship with food, so can someone tell me if this is okay, or too much. What do you give your little ones?
Here is today's food diary.

7am breakfast - bowl of blueberry wheats cereal
9am snack - a banana
12pm lunch- 1 tortilla wrap folded over and filled with mushroom and cheese then warmed in a pan to melt cheese
3.30pm snack- 3 mini breadsticks and an orange
5pm ish tea - chicken stir fry with noodles with a yoghurt after if she wants it.
7pm bedtime milk.

Sounds perfect to me! I do exactly the same and so do my friends.

Although I don't do the bed time milk anymore as my little one is 2.

If anything I'd say that was less than DD ate at that age and she still has bedtime milk aged 2.3yo

Sounds perfect. My dd needs a mid morning and mid afternoon snack at almost 3 or she's a beast.
I actually feed her far less than most of my friends feed their kids but she eats her meals well and none of them do. Not sure which is a product of which.

Sounds almost identical to what my 15 month eats - sometimes he eats a but more, sometime less.
