    Bananas are his fave, in his smoothies it's banana, strawberries, blueberries, vanilla yogurt & a little honey

    OP I could have pretty much written your post about my DD2. She snacks ALL day long, & now Im thinking she needs some higher fat/protein ideas for her. She mostly snacks on fruit &veg,quite plain carbs/ grains (sandwiches, crackers, rice cakes etc) & the occassional sweet, such as a bikkie. She is a bit of a finicky eater & by the responses on here, Im thinking her snacks arent filling enough. Keep the ideas for snacks coming please, I am finding it very helpful! OP,I have no advice,just solidarity. I have been letting her graze as she needs, but I think I need to get a bit strict with set mealtimes.

    ETA:My DD doesnt like eggs & has a cows milk allergy. Im thinking she might be missing some sources of protein there....

    I do notice when the weather isn't great and we aren't doing a lot that he will be even worse about it.
    No worries my DD is a fussy eater of the painful variety and would happily eat toast and crackers all day, fruit is an enemy in her eyes so I don't have much else to offer but there are some great ideas that I might try too.

    Just a few light-hearted "off-the-cuff" remarks. Please don't take offence.

    I have the same issue with my 5-year-old. He claims he is hungry seemingly every 15 minutes. Drives me batty. He eats a fair amount, but his weight never changes...he has been 20.3kg for most of the year! So I assume he really is hungry. And I never know what to feed him in-between meals either. He has cereal for brekky, a sandwich and fruit and yoghurt for lunch, and usually meat and vegies for dinner. But "snacks" have me beat...and he vetoes a number of my suggestions, I think usually to see what "good stuff" may be on offer!!

    I like the idea of a "platter" of snacks on the bench, which is self-serve. I think I will try it. Fruit, cheese, yoghurt, dry bikkies...what else?

    I'm not really up to much cooking at the moment (recovering from radiotherapy for breast cancer), but I can "chop and assemble". Any such ideas would be well received.

    Sent from my SM-N910G using The Bub Hub mobile app
    Veggie sticks either with dip or on their own, cherry tomatoes, baby corn spears (mine love them), quartered hard boiled eggs, nuts (mine all love almonds), plain popcorn, left over cold meat (from roast chicken, lamb etc...)

    That's not the only thing he ever eats, I'm not a monster, he also eats yogurts and biscuits and packets of chips and probably 2 carrots a day as well as cupcakes etc as we go out for morning tea a few days a week, I was just giving an example of the things he might eat at those times!
    He nibbles in between too!

    I forgot how much of a horrible mother these forums can make you feel!

    He won't eat anything else for breakfast, if he can't have toast he doesn't want anything, occasionally I'll get him to eat porridge but he doesn't even get through half of it before asking for toast again.

    For lunch he will have anything from eggs on toast, to toasted ham & cheese sandwiches to baked beans or spaghetti, it varies!

    The platter sounds like a great idea, I'll give that one a go, things like cheese and crackers and fruits and hams???
    I did one today that had a cold sausage, chopped up, carrot sticks, two cherry tomatoes, a baby bel cheese, a cruskit and a handful of sultanas. Sometimes it's ham, tuna, different types of fruit. Usually I try and do a diary product (cheese yog etc) meat, veggies fruit and a protein.

    Will he eat French toast for breakfast? So bread dipped fully in egg and then fried (minimal oil - you could use spray olive oil) in frying pan?

    For lunch I would do a platter of protein (tuna or similar) and some raw veges.

    Morning/arvo snack could be fruit and cheese and crackers.
