Help oh wise ones!

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

It was normal crumble but a bit less sugar. I basically take most sugar out of most recipes anyway so essentially it was the normal crumble I make. Yum.

We don't have brinner in our house we have brupper since we call the evening meal.Supper. I agree with Roo, lunchfast is good.

But ph, yeah, what about the breakfast biscuits or healthy muffins that float around this forum? Or a.cheese.sandwich?

Pancakes? We make up a batch Sunday night which keeps most of the week so it's actually super quick. Fruit on top so healthy. Has cake in the name so seen as a treat.

They all do. Especially when unwell. Drive you to the point of a meltdown in FC then are magically fine again! Bless them.

We're not that big on forcing structure (this is breakfast time so you have to eat now, or you have no more chances to eat until lunch, etc) so when DD doesn't eat breakfast we'll put her food back in the fridge. When she's hungry, it comes out again. We can keep putting the same bowl of yogurt & oranges in and out of the fridge all day if you want...

If she doesn't want to "eat" you can also try getting her to drink milk? It will solve some of the hunger. DD is too busy playing after her nap to want to sit and eat a snack but she's a bear if we make her wait until dinner, so we usually give her a cup of milk to tide her over

I think what you are doing is great, I would keep doing that. It will pass. And three year olds are the most contrary of creatures!

Thanks! She ate fine again today.

SRC - I would do the same if we were at home but we're not, so she needs to eat something. She starts preschool next month - if she hadn't eaten breakfast at home her old nursery would have given her some but preschool won't do that so she needs to eat something before we leave. I'm not being fair to her if I don't give her the best chance of doing so.

Fingers crossed it has stopped. For now! Ha.

I understand, the mornings that stress me out are when we have plans outside the house! My daughter always wants to sleep in and then dawdle at breakfast when we have places to go at a specific time. Yes, let's not eat before dance class, that's a great way to be in a good mood to follow along at a semi-structured activity :P On those days our problems are just speed, so I give her foods that she tends to eat quicky (string cheese, applesauce pouch) instead of foods she loves but eats slowly (bagel, fruit). But that's a different issue than not wanting to eat all

Getting started seems to be the issue for ds when hungry. Orange juice is supposedly incrrasing apetite and could be a morningstarter (thiugh ds doesn't like it ). If he doesn't eat his breakfast before going to school he gets a sandwich to eat in the car before drop off. A few butes seems to carry him over till lunch.

Otherwise im also thinking of what to let him do him self that we r doing. In general terms, to meet his 3 yr need of more independence and reduce resistance in areas we cant let go. Saying no just because they can seem to be the thing...
