I'm not concerned about the mess.... Just the intake. She has maybe half slice toast breakfast, cruskit for lunch and yogurt and maybe a bickie or rice cracker at dinner. I cut and steam fruit and veg but she doesn't eat it, same with eggs or cheese or meat or pasta or rice. Just plays with it and then throws it on the floor. But I guess that is normal.... Just she's very very small and MIL keeps telling me my DH and his sister used to eat sooo much more than she does and she's not ready to be feeding herself etc etc so doubting myself about letting her do her own thing.

I do this to op.
Ds2 is under 8kg and just about to turn 1.
If I don't give him pouches he doesn't get enough and is on the Boob all night making up for the lack of food all day.
He was eating heaps of finger food before I found pouches on holiday now I can't get him back into it.

Do you have any baby cookbooks? Annabel Karmel has a few out with plenty of tips and very yummy recipes--I even make some of the recipes for DH and I.
Maybe making the meals a bit more exciting will help.

For the things she won't eat, I'd still keep putting them on her plate/tray each day. Food is about discovery as well as eating. If you have a baby who likes to be the one in control then they will try the food one day, it will just be on their terms when they decide they're ready!

I give DS weetbix with milk and yoghurt for breakfast which I feed to him.
Lunch today was pikelets, grapes, half a chopped sausage, cheese stick and a pouch of fruit.
For dinner he had bread and I fed him chicken and rice that we were all eating. Generally I feed him a mixture of finger food and stuff I feed him. He shreds broccoli if it is put in front of him, but will eat it if I chop it up and spoon it in.
I use pouches if I'm out and about and want to make sure he's had lunch before taking him home for a sleep. Otherwise I'd be packing lots of little bits and pieces all the time.
