Would you be satisfied with this?

You go to a Chinese buffet with your family. Your four year old eats two chicken wings (minus the skin he doesn't like), 1/3 of a banana in strawberry sauce, 1/4 of an orange, 1/2 cup of Mandarin oranges, two pigs in a blanket (minus the blanket), a few potato wedges (that he doesn't really like because of the thickness), a couple shrimp, and three pieces of squid. He has water to drink, but doesn't drink a whole lot of it since he's on a lemonade kick.

Would that satisfy you a good meal? Would you allow him to eat dessert or make him finish what was on his plate? On the plate BTW was two shrimp and four potato wedges.

When we go out to eat I really don't care what ds eats. If he ate food he can have dessert.

First, we don't do Chinese buffets. Second, I'm lucky if my child eats anything so as long as she eats something, I'm happy.

I think that was adequate amount. Small ( half?) dessert. Kids will not let themselves starve.

It's fine. He's listening to his body and stopping when he's not hungry anymore.

Honestly my son is so picky I would be happy if he ate that much

That sounds like a lot for a 4 year old. I wouldn't force him to eat more than he was comofrtable eating just so he could stuff in some dessert

For his age, I think he ate pretty well.
