So i know this thread comes up all the time, but i constantly fret about DS's diet today was a fairly typical day, and this is what he ate:
Breakfast: porridge with a drizzle of honey and 1/2 a banana
MT: slice of toast with jam
Lunch: another slice of toast with a scrambled egg, a small bowl of rockmelon
AT: a few dried apricots and a homemade anzac biscuit, and 2 rice crackers
Dinner: pasta with cheesy tuna and spinach sauce.
He gets a marshmallow after dinner if he eats all his dinner.
He eats fairly well, but I struggle getting veggies in him at any other time but at dinner. He doesn't like raw veggies at all, so unless I make him a cooked lunch or he gets one at child care, it's pretty much just veggies at dinner. He will eat almost any vegetable if it's cooked, so I try to pack them in to dinner.
But he has been known to go a few days with barely a vegetable passing his lips, and he probably eats more junk than he should. Everyone gives him junk food- MIL and DP are the worst culprits, DP is constantly giving him sugary drinks and chips on the weekend when he has them. He is at MIL's on Tuesdays and eats hot chips, juice, iceypoles, lollipops, etc etc. He eats homemade treats probably close to every day- I try to make them healthier by adding fruit or veg in things, using less sugar and using vegan recipes that don't use dairy. At the moment we have anzac biscuits and chocolate zuchinni mini cupcakes made with oil instead of butter and eggs. And on mondays we have a cupcake at a local cafe after kinder (he doesn't get a treat at home those days).
So tell me honestly what your kids eat (not just what you serve them, what they actually eat!) And whether you think my DS eats too much rubbish.
