    Quite normal at that age, I found my DS went from an eating machine at 1 to a grazer at 2 and now ( turns 3 next week ) he eats what I think is a normal days food
    Eg today-
    Breakfast - 2 egg pancake with tomato, cheese and herbs and some fruit

    Morning tea - rice cakes with avocado

    Lunch - chicken, cheese, spinach mountain bread wrap

    Afternoon tea - yogurt and an apple

    Dinner - fish tacos

    He drinks water all day

    Very normal to graze and be picky and it can also be then trying to asert some independence. Dont worry they will eat if hungry just keep offering.

    My Ds grazes but I dont mind so long as it's semi healthy. Porridge breakfast and then fruit, rice crackers, sandwiches, ham, cheese, boiled egg, fruit etc at whatever time he wants thru the day. Dinner is whatever we have and sometimes he won't eat it but has a banana or sandwich instead. He'll grow into proper mealtimes later I guess :-)

    Thanks everyone for your reply. She still has milk at bed time, been trying to cut it out but no luck just yet, I thought it might be the problem, she has no interest in breakfast of any kind?? Today she woke at 7 am lazed about with me in my bed for over and hour ( me 33 weeks pregnant and super tired lol ) before she wanted to get up and brush teeth, get ready etc. she was awake for a full 1 1/2 hours before I even mentioned breakfast, she sat down had 2 spoon fulls and said she was done? 45 min later ate 1 small piece of whole meal toast? Is that normal? Only drinks water when wakes up!!
