  • It depends on the day...some days she eats like a bird (3-4 x's her weight) other days, she eats just enough to get by.

    Monday: cup of yogurt, 1/2 grilled cheese 4 fries, 1 bite spagettios
    Saturday: yogurt, banana, fruit loops and milk, chicken nuggets (7) small fries, apple, carrots (@5-6 little ones), yogurt bites, another banana, 1/2 hamburger, grean beans, cottage cheese, mac and cheese.

  • A lot. Especially for how little he is. He eats more than my 4 year old.

    Yesterday, for breakfast, he had a bowl of life cereal, a whole apple and milk. He ate all of it.

    Then for lunch he had a turkey sandwich with swiss cheese, lettuce and tomato, a whole dill pickle, goldfish crackers (about 20), and grape juice.

    For a snack we had homemade chocolate chip cookies and milk

    Then for dinner we had broccoli and cheese soup with homemade bread and milk. He had two bowls of soup and about 4 slices of bread.

    Yes, I've been on a baking spree lately.

  • it depends on the day, sometimes he eats like a pig and then other days he just grazes and doesn't eat a whole lot
