For a while I was really strict about 3 meals a day, and two snacks...okay yeah, I"m a little bit of a control freak lol. Well they would eat almost nothing at a meal, then complain about being hungry an hour later, so I started just giving them small meals/snacks throughout the day. This was yesterday...does anyone else have a kid that eats like this? It seems to work for them. I mean they're both energetic, and healthy.
Breakfast: half an Omelet and a piece of plain toast
...well bread lightly toasted, they don't really like toast lol. I go by my old nutrionists reccomendation of one carb and one protien for breakfast.
Snack: 1 Banana with peanut butter.
Snack 2: 1 cup cantalope and 1/3 cup of cheezits. 9 am is when they seem to be at their most hungry
Lunch:usually around 11 or 11:30 Cubed and Sauteed chicken (in olive oil), carrots (which they may or may not eat, I still offer them), and hummus (which they dip the carrots in).
Snack: Organic apple and currant sauce
Snack: three small sticks of celery with tuna salad spead on it (they typically don't eat the celery sticks, but I still try to offer it. And there is celery in the salad, but don't tell them hehe).
Dinner: homemade sloppy joes. They usually eat half.
Final snack/dessert : grapes for DS, strawberries for DD (they get to pick what fruit they want)
