Our kids have not been eating their dinner for the last week AT ALL. We never force them to eat. They have learned that they do not have to eat their dinner then when they wake up they get to have the breakfast of their choice which is usually something sweet like cereal. Since they are being difficult, my husband and I came up with an idea we think is genious and I am wondering what you all think?? We are going to feed them dinner for breakfast in the morning hoping they will learn that they cannot only eat sweets. We do not think it is okay to ever force a child to eat just in case they are not hungry. But we know they are because they are STARVING by the time morning rolls around. From an outsider perspective, what do you think?

Only buy Wheaties, Raisin Bran and Oatmeal. They aren't so full of sugar. Dinner for breakfast sounds like a good idea! They need to get away from that habit of skipping dinner and eating sweet cereal for breakfast. Being so hungry from skipping dinner will make them overeat the sugary cereals in the morning. You should check the side label of the cereal box, and find the actual serving size. People usually eat 3-4 times the amount they are supposed to. Maybe if you start measuring out the actual serving size, they will realize it's not enough after skipping dinner. They may eat more dinner if they know they can't have large amounts of cereal in the morning, just a small amount.
