If she doesn't like it, or is tired or over it, it won't happen... thats okay... i have food in the car for her when i pick her up...
    She has decided that her teacher is her "best friend" and follows her around like a little duckling, lol. All of the staff have commented because she is pretty much 3 (4 in July also) going on 13, she's very chatty and advanced for her age (not tooting her horn or anything, she just is like a mini adult, opinionated/strong willed and a bit too clever) so she's definitely making a name for herself
    She loves it there.

    Hi..interesting thread. My DD is 12mths and started a really lovely daycare. We did BLW and she eats like a horse.. Everything. Apart from daycare food. Won't touch it.
    I don't have the heart to tell them that their foods just boring and flavourless looking.. She won't eat rubbish or poor quality. Sniffs it out a mile off!
    We've resorted to packing her a lunch. A real hassle but at least she's eating!

    Sorry to ask this. But can you make your food? Can they serve your child something else, surely not all kids will eat their meals that's on the menu.

    Maybe they need a menu changed....something more appealing to young toddlers.

    Your child might sense the food isn't good, I'm not sure. I know kids are good sensors.

    If your determined... Can you make the food at Home so she can maybe associate that with daycare?

    I see where you're coming from
    The menu is awesome. It's nutritionally sound and varied and it's the leading childcare franchise in the country so I'm happy to have DD follow their set menu. It's tough having a toddler who can be picky but I'd really like her to try and eat what's on offer, as stressful as that may be for me (fretting about her being *THAT* fussy kid, worrying that she'll starve herself, anxious that she will grow into a fussy adult) I'd like her to learn that she needs to be open to eating a variety of foods.

    Sounds like she eats really well and a big variety...just has strong "preferences". ..I wouldn't worry too much about how much she eats at school - make sure she has a filling brekkie and a hearty dinner, and if she eats nothing for lunch she'll survive just fine. My kids barely eat when they're at school (and it's a packed lunch of things I know they eat), they are just too busy, too distracted, too something...
    Honestly, I think your little character will soon be tucking into the lunches and you'll wonder what you were stressing about ☺ and if she is that fussy kid...doesn't matter, she won't be the last!
