my son is 17mo and I recently started letting him feed himself. I have no idea if he's getting enough to eat! Today for lunch he had about 3 Tbs of peas and 2 fishsticks and a couple bites of a third one which took about 30-45 min. He was playing with his food for about 5 min when I asked him if he was done. He handed me the fish stick and when I tried to give him one more bite he turned his head... So I cleaned him up. Do you think he got enough? Should I offer him a small meal or big snack (fruit) before his next nap?
Also, what can I give him in the morning for breakfast that he can eat by himself.. he is still learning to use a spoon but is more interested in "painting" with it and still can't get food on it by himself...
