Lili-
Quick questions... b/c I'm curious - what is a teacake and what are vegetable fingers? :)

Also.. as far as the milk goes, my doctor wants Nora to get 12-16 oz per day (that was his recommendation at 1 yr and 15 mo) - that is JUST MILK not including cheese, yogurt, etc.  So... IMO, 10 oz doesn't seem excessive.. especially for a kid that doesn't eat much to begin with?

Finally... 8th% isn't bad as long as he's still growing (following his 'own' curve).  :D  Good luck!

teacake is like a fruity bread roll. Also called hot cross buns round easter. Veg fingers are pre made pop in the toaster type breadcrumbed mixed veg shapes. They have about six veggies in but all  chopped up. Look like fish fingers or mozzerella sticks

Veggie fingers sound interesting... I wonder if there's an American equivalent? :)

Here was today's eating (teething molars pretty bad, using consistent meds to keep her from screaming):

B: shredded wheat, 1/4 orange (refused rice/oat cereal and strawberries)
L: 1/2 PB&J, 6 pieces of kiwi, 4 pieces mango, 1 bite grilled cheese
S: rice chex, couple bites of banana, 2 bites pretzel
D: apple/chix puree (4 oz), oatmeal/rice cereal (2 oz), bites of kiwi - refused broccoli, yogurt, cheesy pasta, fruit

Typically dinner is our big meal of the day.. and she just wasn't interested?  Probably had too many rice chex! ::)

Hi everyone, DS turned 1 last Thursday so I can "officially" follow along on this board if you don't mind! At the moment, he is being very particular about what he will eat (teething molars).  Going to try out some new things today and will post anything interesting we have success with.

My LO goes to school during the day, so here's what she had for dinner:

Macaroni and cheese, half a navel orange, green beans, frosted shortbread cookie

A quick story: In the past 7 months, I've picked up frosted cookies from Panera Bread as a treat for Chandler three times. The first time was in October, and it was a pumpkin shape, the next time was Valentine's day, so it was pink. Yesterday was the third time, and it was a yellow easter egg shape. Chandler took one bite into the easter egg cookie, and exclaimed, "Just like pumpkin cookie! Just like pink cookie! Mmmmmm!" I was shocked. I can't believe my child can remember--in the parade of cookies she has eaten since October--the other two cookies she has ever eaten that taste the same as this cookie! It's not like we were at the bakery or there was any other association with the treat. It was purely the taste.

I am back on here after a while as DS is losing weight and just seems to want to eat all day so am looking for comparisons/ideas. I am pg at very lazy so really want some easy meals too.
Today
B: few wotsits (he found a half eaten packet and I just said ok - bad mama) and banana pancakes with honey and nutella dip and an apple
S: crunchy nut cornflakes and 1/2 a tracker bar
L: pitta and humous, satsuma
S: 1/2 a pear and  1/2 a banana
D: shepherds pie with peas and carrots, strawberries, then chicken balls and noodles from our takeaway. Diluted OJ.

I realise now I have written it down what a bitty day  it has been. I hope it will be better tomorrow.
