A while ago I asked some questions about getting kids to eat veggies and other things. Just thought I should let you know that in the 2 weeks they have been out of daycare they have done so well! I really think daycare was the probably, they don't make them try things and basically the kids can eat whichever part of the meal and eat as much as they want. One time DD ate 5 dinner rolls, 4 servings of fruit and nothing else.
Her BMI is already improving (it was 99%). Plus both kids are eating veggies every day and learning what portion sizes are. They are so used to asking for more over and over and it just being given to them that they don't understand. DS still asks for more 2 or 3 times, but has won't ever finish. We made a rule that they can "more" once and that's it. DD still has times that she doesn't want to eat whatever veggies I made, but she has eaten more veggies in the last 2 weeks than she has in months. They also can't have more of anything unless they eat everything on their plate first. I am so happy! This is working so well for us! DD's BMI is down to 92%.
