If it's something I know she'll usually eat I figure she's not hungry and don't offer anything else. If it's something she's never had before and genuinely doesn't like it, I might offer something else.
DD eats quite a lot in the first half of the day - she basically eats non stop from breakfast to lunch. So I don't worry if she doesn't have much dinner.

I'm always torn, I don't want him to go bed hungry! I ended up giving him some pasta to play with, he ate some & some frozen peas (guarantee) & some frozen berries, I'm not sure if his teeth are bothering or what is going on... So frustrating though! lol

It sounds pretty normal to me, most kids go through these phases. I find DD goes through an 'eating phase' then it's followed by a 'sleepy phase' - and suddenly her clothes don't fit! It's like she's stocking up on energy then hibernates while she grows. So there will be a few days or a week or two when she doesn't eat much especially in the second half of the day.

Yes normal & frustrating... DH is away this week so can't bounce things off him... Hopefully tomorrow he will start eating again :-)

Has anyone else discovered ONE handed cooks?
Best website ever family foods. So easy to make with simple ingredients I usually have on hand anyway and really healthy nutritious foods. We've been cooking something from their dinner and snacks section for meals almost every day.
My kids love the baked beans atm. So much healthier than the tinned versions and perfect for a cold winter breaky. They freeze really well too!

They look delish Sajimum
Does anyone's child go to childcare which is "egg-free"? Are you able to send baked goods that have egg in them for your own child? Not sure if they just mean don't pack a boiled egg/egg sandwich or if there can even be any egg in the ingredients??

Little kids don't really understand allergies and some kids are extremely sensitive so I wouldn't send anything with egg in it. I'd be too worried about DD sharing it or touching the other child's food/face/hands straight after eating it.
