    Depends what it is, but often he will leave his dinner without even trying it. I usually give him a banana and yoghurt so he doesn't go to bed hungry and he'll eat that happily though.

    DS is pretty good, he eats what we eat and sometimes it's a lot and sometimes just a bit, I never make a big deal over it , I figure he will eat unil he is full!
    I would not worry too much as long as he is eating brekky/lunch which they say should really be our main meal anyway!

    You've given me some good tips there posters! Thank you. I'll offer up some veggies for lunch. It's hard at the moment because he goes to sleep around 11am (or earlier!) until about one. After that he's fussy.... Strange little creature.

    Ive been *not worrying* for months now... But for some reason I'm having a hard time putting him to bed at night when I know it will have been up to 15 hours between meals... Dinner has always been my biggest meal of the day too.

    He would eat junk food - chocolate I'm sure! But no way hose'!

    Default Does your toddler eat....

    My Dd doesn't eat dinner on most days .. Although tonig she had a bowl of fried rice <boiled rice and freezer veg) and that was only after she had her dessert first ( small bowl ice cream and chopped strawberries) she will often have small breaks lunch IF she is in the mood and barely had dinner but will drink milk and eat tons of fruit yesterday a punned of strawberries disappeared in and hr ...... And while I'm happy for her to eat at her own pace it's kinda of embarrassing when we go out to people's houses and she doesn't eat anything or refuses things .... Christmas Day was terrible she hardly ate and only really had pudding and custard and strawberries lol as much as I should encourage the fruit things it's is just so expensive and she goes through sooo much of it so fast lol ..... From what I've been told most toddlers go through a faze of being choosing their food I'm happy for DDto express herself and communicate her meal choices but it is frustrating when you have people with kids the same age talking about oh my son/daughter eats 3 meals each day and snack etc

    This is our DD too!! Sometimes I wonder how on earth she grows and just as I start to is when she eats like a horse for a meal and I'm satisfied again

    Ds1 just doesn't eat, after an hour of refusing dinner he has eaten a cucumber, half a slice of bread and is now snacking on strawberries. It would be so easy to give in and give him junk coz at least he'd eat it. But I will stay strong...
