  • One or two bites of his eggs at breakfast before tossing the bowl. Refusing lunch. Few bites of banana for snack. Half a graham cracker, maybe. A bite of his green peas and a bite of sphagetti at dinnertime before pushing plate away. That sort of stuff.

  • well what I mean is either my child didnt eat at all or has eaten maybe one or two bites of whatever i fix. Normally my kids go thru growth spurts and eat a ton and when they arent they dont really eat anything except maybe a pb sandwich and milk.

  • Mine ate 2 pieces of french toast and milk and 3 peanut butter crackers... NOW he isn't wanting his dinner at all. He's only had 1 bite. So... if he doesn't want this, he'll wait for breakfast.

  • To day she ate a good breakfast (bowl of cheerios and cup of milk)and a great lunch (2 pieces of chicken lunch meat, 2 oz of cheese, and 3 driedn apricots and a cup of apple juice) and didn't hardly touch her dinner (half a cup of 15 bean soup w/ham) and she will have to wait for breakfast.

  • Toddlers eat like birds! Little bite here, little bite there! You just learn to deal with it and move on, no sense making a big deal about it if it's not gonna change anytime soon! :) My guy is not a good breakfast eater, but he is good at lunch and dinner, and sometimes just lunch....I always just remind myself that he will eat when he is hungry.
