    Same reasons. I worry about her not getting enough nutrients/vitamins/minerals food growth. .. To be healthy.
    And I worry she will only eat a handful of different foods which will make her unable to hang out with friends at their houses etc....

    The friends houses thing crosses my mind too with all of DDs allergies and dairy intolerance, I don't want her to be the kid who's in the too hard basket - you know, better not invite Alice, there are so many foods she cant eat, its better to be safe than sorry. That makes me really sad

    @Tamtam and @Allie Pallie don't worry about what your DD's friends will think when they get older. DD1 and DD2 have loads of friends over who have all sorts of quirks when it comes to food. I don't even notice half the time. If it's particularly important the parent always lets me know and I always accommodate them.

    As my kids get older I've come to appreciate food is such a small part of their world and has nothing to do with what makes them wonderful children.

    **In fact one of DD1's friends who is a right little sheet eats the best of them all**

    After last night's meltdown...
    DD had terrible brekky.
    Ate scrambled eggs did lunch. ..
    And for dinner demolished the portion on her plate of macaroni and cauliflower cheese. Couldn't believe my eyes. She threw the tomatoes and Kabana away but ate an entire serve of mac n cheese.

    I think one of my major fears is being judged by others - being accused by health professionals of not trying hard enough, not offering her nutritious and healthy meals, that this is all my fault and her poor eating and small size (even though I am tiny myself 40kg) is a reflection on my parenting skills.

    I am dreading the 18 month check, I'm waiting to hear those words "failure to thrive" and the questions that follow even though I KNOW she is happy and healthy and meeting milestones and she'll eat when she's ready. It's not so much her I'm concerned about (I use a multivitamin and I'm still breastfeeding to put my mind at ease) but how others perceive and judge us.

    I worry about his health. He had a very rocky start and he has an absolutely shocking immune system. He gets absolutely every sickness going around. I also worru because a lot of the foods he will eat are not terribly healthy (think nutella sandwiches, jatz biscuits, cereal fruit bars) and I am constantly worried I am doing everything wrong when it comes to him.

    Unfortunately so many of the nurses who do these checks can be harsh as they're all reading from the same hymn sheet, however, just remember you have 3 kids and they all eat differently, so do all of our kids, so they're eating is the way it is for many many reasons, and by no means your fault!

    By all means if they offer some helpful suggestions, take them on board, but please don't feel bad.

    Let us know how you go!
