I'm not concerned about the mess.... Just the intake. She has maybe half slice toast breakfast, cruskit for lunch and yogurt and maybe a bickie or rice cracker at dinner. I cut and steam fruit and veg but she doesn't eat it, same with eggs or cheese or meat or pasta or rice. Just plays with it and then throws it on the floor. But I guess that is normal.... Just she's very very small and MIL keeps telling me my DH and his sister used to eat sooo much more than she does and she's not ready to be feeding herself etc etc so doubting myself about letting her do her own thing.
