To serve him his dinner for breakfast?

At my wits end with my 5 year old and food. He was making good progress with becoming less fussy until a month or two ago. I try to operate a 'eat it or don't eat it' policy but unless he is given plain pasta and sodding cheese to eat then he just doesn't eat dinner. I'm only serving things that I know he has eaten and liked in the past anyway. There is no snacking between meals and he wakes up starving because he isn't eating dinner. Additionally, it's just such a needless waste of food.

WIBU to serve him his dinner for breakfast the next morning the next time he refuses to eat?

I agree with adding flavours to potatoes and greens: olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, mayo, butter. Whatever gets them down.

I'm really glad your meal went better without resorting to your initial suggestion.

I've just read 'Mommie Dearest' and there is a horrendous account of Joan Crawford doing that!
