What does a normal day look like for your tween food-wise?
Breakfast is cereal, or whatever breakfast foods are cooked, lunch is a sandwich or salad (he's my healthiest kid and loves salads) with usually some fruit or more veggies, then a yogurt snack when he comes home from school, and for dinner, whatever I cook, though he usually stays away from meat, besides fish and chicken, and doesn't like most staple foods, like rice, potatoes, or noodles. I always worry that he doesn't eat enough, because while he eats a lot of fruits and veggies, not much else, but he's growing like crazy, he's taller than I am and only 11.
LOL My kitchen is a mess when he's done "cooking" . He has 3 choices for breakfast, school lunch most of the time, and dinner is whatever we make and he has no option. Weekends are most often a fend for yourself (all of us) unless I or SO make plans. We're lucky; DS loves fruit and most veggies, rarely argues about the meat choice and only gives us crap on weekends over soda/pop.
It seems like lately our 12 yo will eat anything and everything. She's always had a very healthy appetite but it's increased recently. ( probably a growth spurt) Normally she eats cereal or french toast sticks for breakfast with orange juice. Lunch is at school during the week. She loves corn dogs, turkey and cheese sandwiches on wheat..raw veggies dipped in ranch dressing. Etc..
Pancakes ( she makes them most every day for the family) then school lunch and wot ever we have for dinner. Paige will eat anything. She isn't fussy at all.
