My DD is nearly 4 and is having her daycare orientation today.
She was the only child in a group of around 20 who refused to touch her lunch (sandwiches). She has never liked them and will only eat toast at home. The carer had to call me into the room as she just wouldn't eat. I hate this. It's only going to get worse, I saw the menu of their usual foods (beef strog, chicken curry with rice, spag bol etc) and she won't eat any of that. She hates sauces etc...at home she generally eats plain meat (steak/chicken etc) with plain pasta on the side, nothing mixed in. She loves tinned tuna, plain rice, grated cheese. Some veg. There's no way she will eat a casserole.
I am feeling so crappy and like a failure right now. Every other kid in the room happily eats, except my daughter.
What should I do? Just get the staff to encourage her to eat what they serve? Or ask them to give her what I know she will eat?
She will be starving every day at this rate.
I hate this.
Anyone else go through this?
