    I'm a nanny for a lactose intolerant 2.5 y/o.

    Breakfast usually porridge with rice milk + flaxseed. Or bagel/toast or a cereal such as bran flakes.

    Snacks- fruit, cashews, dried fruit bars/wibble things, olives, fruit purée pouches, crackers w spread.

    Lunch- wraps with avo/hummus/ham
    Antipasto plate (avo, olives, pita bread, hummus), homemade pizza

    Dinner varies a lot as her mum makes a lot of vegetarian/vegan dishes.
    I usually make her sausages, sausage rolls or fish served with mixed frozen veg variety.

    Dd is a bit fussy. She demands to be picked up so she can pick something out of the cupboard.. most days this means chips or lasagne sheets or something totally random and not breakfast appropriate.
    After her little tantrum subsides on why she can't have uncooked pasta.. She usually has fruit and yoghurt. Sometimes I make cooked oats with sultanas or banana mixed through.day care days she has a bowl of Cheerios (cereal) and a banana at school.

    DS is almost 3 and is pretty fussy - particularly with meat and veg

    Breakfast is 2 weetbix with milk

    Morning tea is usually fruit (apple, rockmelon, grapes or strawberries usually)

    Lunch is a sandwich or wrap with sliced chicken breast, avocado and cheese

    Afternoon tea is corn cob, fruit, salada or rice cake with peanut butter/avo/cream cheese, mini muffins or muesli bar we have made.

    Dinner is hard - he will eat quiche, homemade sausage rolls, roast beef, grilled fish (from the fish and chip shop only)....and that's about it! In terms of salad/veg he will only eat corn and occasionally cucumber and raw carrot sticks.

    I basically dish up whatever we are having for dinner, but he often doesn't eat. I also make a hot meal for lunch when I can and then give a wrap/sandwich for dinner so he doesn't go to bed hungry.

    My guy has a pretty varied diet so in the last 24 hrs -
    Dinner: vermicelli noodles with peanut sesame sauce.
    Bottle of formula

    Brekky: peanut butter honey sandwich

    Babycino and some bliss ball.

    Lunch: miso soup, baby corn, teriyaki tofu, rice

    On other days he might eat porridge/wheat bix for brekky, a sandwich and fruit (watermelon, pear, banana, strawberries) for lunch, and yoghurt, home baked muffins, crackers, popcorn for snacks.
