This is my menu on good days so the max. Days like yesterday he doesnt eat breakfast or dinner and just lunch with somethings here & there....I will try and avoid rusks/biscuits & explore other finger foods. Could you pls explain what is veg crisps??? For the dinner I know it is late but the problem is that I get back home from work ard 6 and then bf him twice between 6-8 so it eventually ends up to be ard 9-9.30 as I maintain a gap of atleast an hour so that he is hungry......but what should I do????

more than this? my 14 month old has fewer meals a day! only thing I would avoid biscuits and rusks due to the sugar and salt and hydrogenated fats in them... not good for a baby so young and creates a poor habit. how about some other finger food? veg or fruit... or mine used to like veg crisps made in the microwave, like potato or kale... or tiny bit of soup. .. This could also be his supper instead and dinnee brought forward to 7.30 as it is late enough for such a young one.

.I think it takes time. Nevan (my son) also eats lil qty but I give him variety so he likes it. There are bad days for me as well wherein everything cooked nd done goes waste but then I try to follow this schedule as much as possible. Dont worry, they all will eventually eat when they are hungry...
