    Default *Spin off* How much does your child eat?

    Was just thinking about DD's intake. Today it's been like this:

    Breakfast
    DD - 2 pieces of toast, 2 Weetbix.
    Me - 1 piece of toast, 1 coffee

    Morning tea
    DD - 1 apple, 1 pikelet with butter.
    Me - 1 coffee

    Lunch
    DD - 1 peanut butter sandwich, 1 piece of zucchini slice, 1 biscuit, 2 saos with vegemite.
    Me - 1 slice of bread with peanut butter on it, 1 coffee.

    Afternoon tea
    DD - 1 plate with watermelon balls on it, some cheese cut into cubes, Vitawheet crackers.
    Me - Just made another coffee, might have some watermelon soon.

    She will probably come back at about 4-ish looking for food and she'll probably then have another biscuit or pikelet or something, maybe some more watermelon then she'll have the same as me for tea

    DS1- Two pieces of toast for brekkie, munch and crunch (a piece of fruit) at school, a sandwich, recess (usually pikeltets, a little bag or popcorn, some cheese and crackers), something small for afternoon tea, dinner (say, 1 sausage, maybe 3/4 cup pasta and 1/2 cup veges), and some milk for dessert.

    SS- 2 weetbix for breakfast, some fruit for morning tea, a sandwich for lunch, maybe a biccie after this, dinner (which is half a sausage, half the above mentioned pasta and half of the above mentioned peas), and some milk for dessert.

    Today Phoenix has eaten:
    2 pieces of toast with vegemite
    1 apple (I believe)
    2 sushi rolls with chicken and avocado
    1 tiny handful of salt and vinegar chips
    1 citrus splash V8 juice
    He'll have dinner (lasagne with salad) and probably a carrot as snack before that.

    My child is 7 and only weighs 19kg

    She's already asking what's for tea, she can smell everything we've been cooking today lol. Not sure yet what's for tea but I think she wants the cottage pie. She'll easily have 2 serves of that.

    DS1 has a HUGE eater. At 12months he would be eating 3 weet-bix with half a banana on it for breakfast, and then want morning tea an hour and a half later! With my twins I make the same amount of breakfast for both of them as I did for just him. DS2 eats more of it than DD1 as well. He probably has 3 weet-bix and she has 1 out of it.

    Then usually a sandwich for lunch - peanut butter or honey or cheese. DS1 has 2 s/w usually. He will also eat a banana or 2, and a pear and apple. Also a handful of tiny teddies or 3 arrowroots. Same for the bubs. Then dinner - it will depend. DS2 ate more meatloaf than I did last night, DD2 at none, but heaps of mashed pumpkin.

    When DS1 was eating watermelon -he'd eat a 1/4 of one in one day easily - he loved the stuff.

    DS2 is just 3.5 and he is 20kg. 5.5yo DD1 is 19kg. Both bubbas are on the smaller side - at 17months DS2 is 11kg and DD2 10kg.

    DD1
    yogurt with muesli for breakfast.
    apple
    nutella sandwich for lunch.
    and a fruit salad jelly thing i made

    DD2
    about a table spoon of yogurt and muesli
    1/4 of a nutella sandwich
    banana

    im making sausage rolls for dinner, DD1 will probably eat all hers but DD2 will probably only eat a bite or 2 (hence why i make meals like sausage rolls where i can hide vegies)

    today has been pretty lazy, normally they have a wrap for lunch but i could not be bothered today. (DD2 would still only have a little of it though)

    DD1 has days where she will eat a truck load and others she will hardly eat, she is pretty standard with her meals i would say.
    DD2, does not eat much and never has.

    Mine go through phases - they remind me of wild animals. Especially DS2, who will eat heaps for a day or so and then hardly anything for another couple of days, and continue through that cycle. The days of hardly eating used to worry me till I realised his little pattern and was reassured that in a day or so he would eat enough to make up for it!
