TBH, a lot of toddlers (mostly girls, but some boys too) do get fussier with food and eating habits for a while.
If you are really worries, maybe talk to your CHN.

I did do her height and weight today and looked up in her purple book and she's fabulous on the charts (97th and 90th percentile respectively) so that also helped me relax a bit! She's obviously getting what she needs!
This thread is just what I needed too! Thanks OP!!

DS's routine has been very similar from around 15 months to now (2.5 years) except he went down for a nap earlier then, so lunch a bit earlier. But basically:
7 wake and breakfast
9.30-10ish morning tea (often doesn't eat anything as he has a humungous breakfast)
3.30 arvo tea (grazes for an hour or so)
If they are eating decently throughout the day I wouldn't worry at all about dinner. DS had gone through phases of not eating any dinner, I just let him have just his glass of milk instead as he generally eats well in the day. When he's going through one of these phases I'll generally give him a bigger meal at lunch instead of just sandwiches just to make sure he's getting some veggies in. The routine has never changed, I think sometimes they just need less food when they're not growing so much.

8-9 a DVD or self directed play while I wake up and sort myself out shower etc
9-11.30 either go out for a playdate, or to the park or for a walk.
1130 lunch followed by a half a cup of warm milk.
11.30 to 2- sleep
2-3.30 direct play with me (puzzles, blocks, craft, playdoh etc)
4.00-5.00 more play with me or a walk
5-5.30 bath and pyjamas
530 dinner then books
