ds2 has just polished off almost a full slice of cheese on toast, he has had a small piece of apple and some vanilla yoghurt...(my lovingly prepared veg puree was ignored)

what do you think would be good to give him for an afternoon snack?

more fruit, a biscuit, crackers, breadsticks, etc

Cadbury's dairy milk. He'll want the large size as he didn't have the veg.

????? thanks for your helpful post provincial lady - just what I need when I am asking for some advice

It was a joke ilovespinach, that's all.

If you want serious advice then I would say that you don't need to worry yourself over whether he has a rice cake or a stick of carrot. It is how his overall diet pans out over a week/month that counts, and if he is still very young - which he must be or you wouldn't be worrying about this - then his main nutrition is coming from milk. I didn't mean to be horrible honestsmile

How old is your ds? My dd is 14 months and loves humzinger sticks (dried fruit) they are near the raisins etc in supermarket. How about a banana?

p.s don't offer him any lollipops though wink (joke due to my posting name!)

sorry provincial...I have a sense of humour bypass at the moment...sorry of it sounded like I was on the attack.....(nice person emoticon)....

how old is your ds?

I would second the 'calm down' aproach

just give him a little something

it's weekly that you need to look at how a childs diet is overall

if he is over 18 months I would say he would love some buttons grin

sorry again Dh is away and I have the kids all to myself for a couple of weeks and the strain is showing....
DS1 has had large amounts of cholcolate today - guess I need some too

Don't worry I can see how it could be misconstruedsmile It's hard when you are on your own for a bit isn't it? I don't know how single parents cope.
