Foods for 3yr old
My youngest is 3.5 and a typical day for him food wise is:
Breakfast - cereal or toast and nut butter or eggs or crepes (if I'm feeling nice )
Lunch - A plate with cold meat and salad (cucumber, carrot sticks, cherry tomatoes), cheese and sometimes a hard boiled egg.
Dinner - He eats what we eat so protein and salad or veg, pasta, roast dinner anything really but he's nota fan of casseroles or stews.
Morning/Afternoon tea are
Baked things - biscuit, scone, muffin, scroll etc...
Rice cakes or cruskits with cream cheese or nut butter
Nuts - he loves almonds but I watch him closely!
Plain popcorn or puffed corn
Cheese and crackers
I don't know if that helps at all?

My 3yr olds fav dinner atm is sausage casserole (with hidden vegies). He likes plain white rice or plain pasta with a little grated cheese and butter melted through it.
Homemade Nachos (not spicy) I use this recipe
I don't do the avo and tomato on top for him because then he wouldn't eat it, but I like it. For his I put about 10 corn chips on a plate and then put a little bit of cheese and nacho mix on each.
Butter Chicken, I use the Chicken Tonight Jar and add finely grated carrot to it and half a can of coconut milk. Serve with rice cooked in coconut milk and water (absorption method).

Helpful... I'm just thinking if he eats enough and just more variety.

My 3yo eats.
Breakfast - Cereal and banana or oats and banana or 2 eggs and toast
Morning tea - an Orange or cup of grapes with a piece of cheese
Lunch - today it was a bbq pork bun and salad, but mostly normal food ie Dal/rice, pasta, stirfries, chicken salads, sandwiches, baked beans/toast, soups, casseroles.
Afternoon tea - yoghurt with nuts or crackers with peanut Butter or hummous and veges.
Dinner is varied like lunch. Today we are having lentil soup with garlic bread. But most normal foods.

Some things my 3yo enjoys:
pikelets (I add chia seeds to make them a bit healthier)
Soft boiled egg with bread soldiers to dip
Crackers with cheese
Celery and peanut butter
Veggie sticks and hummus
Sandwiches (he favours peanut butter at the moment)
Piece of fruit
Home made pizzas (he loves helping to put all the toppings on)
Chicken drumsticks (also good cold for lunch)
Pasta with a hidden veggie sauce

We just give the kids mini-meals of what we eat. So breakfast is either scrambled eggs or porridge with honey. Snacks are fresh fruit, dried fruit and nuts, sometimes biscuits (made with almond meal, honey, coconut oil or butter). Lunch is our main meal so vegies or salad, roast potato, and a protein such as steak, roast beef/lamb, casseroled meat. Second snack is same as first. Dinner is often just grazing plate of things like raw carrots, a slice of cheese. Or some soup. We eat quite repetitively but I need to eat gluten free so it works for my meal prep!
