When is it time to...

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.

When is it time to...

I'm not sure whether this is just the 'only eating dessert/no dessert' question in green but...bear with me:

When is it time to say 'today there is meatloaf with veg' and when LO decides NO-NO that is not what he had in mind...then there is no bringing out Babybels or corn on the cob (stored in the fridge for such 'emergencies').

Mateymoo is coming up to 14 mths old and stopped breastfeeding when he was 1. He likes his food and has a belly like a balloon, so no chance of him wasting away if he misses one meal but I'm still not sure how to handle it. Won't it just mean giving more at snack time and getting 'meals' in a twist?

Any advice?

i don't give dd dessert, generally, so we don't have that issue, but if she doesn't eat her dinner then she just gets as much milk as she wants. that's easier for me cos i'm ffing, i suppose. to be honest, most of the time she doesn't actually take any more milk, so i'm forced to assume that the reason she didn't want dinner was because she wasn't hungry. this would fit in with the fac tthat often she doesn't fancy somehting that i know she adores...
