  • As a new mom, I was very very adament my daughter got her three meals, 2 snacks, full fruit & veggie servings, 18 oz of milk, etc. a day. To sum it up I was an OCD, paranoid mother who thought my daughter would die(not literally) if she didn't receive this in a day. But, I found out as long as you establish a healthy eating routine, rich with all the nutrients, she will grow just as well. And it will force you to make healthier eating decisions too! She may skip a snack, or even meal, but that is okay! She will make-up for it eventually :)

  • I do 3 meals a day, and if she wants a snack she comes and asks me and I get it for her. I dont keep track of it anymore...I am not sure I really kept track with the 1st 1 either

  • At least! He gets 3 meals, and he does snack throughout the day. We try to keep it all healthy.

  • my son eats 3 meals a day and atleast 1 snack. i used to give him a snack between breakfast & lunch but since hes in daycare now they dont do that. so he eats breakfast 3hours later lunch 3hours later snack 3hours later dinner. And if he asks for a snack after dinner then i give him something small like crunchies, yogurt etc
