A couple of weeks ago we had a gammon joint and broccoli and chips and gravy for tea and the kids loved it.
So I made it again for tea tonight and they wouldn't eat it... and this is my kids that eat constantly. Well B ate all the broccoli and chip but left the meat.
Then for pudding I had made a variation upon bread and butter pudding with tsrawberries added to it. B has had a bowlful and then didn't want anymore. I had based upon his appetite that he would want several bowls and it would hopefully fill him up. Nope he wants soemthing else now. Why couldn't the bottomless pit just eat several bowlfuls of that to fill him up? U at least is on her seond bowl and that will keep her filled up through the night.

Yep - am in a food rut because Holly is so fussy. She will barely eat dinner (or mess about ages eating lunch) and then when it's been taken away whinges she is hungry.

I need something they will eat a lot of to fill them up that isn't just sweeties! TBH though B won't eat loads of sweeties either he just wants a constant supply of food. I can remember Margot saying ages ago B needs to have more protein in his diet to keep him fuller for longer but the problem is getting into him!
So glad it's not just here!

All the time I feel I am wasting my time! E never eats meat but recently has tried roast chicken and liked it. So I decide to make it for him again, spent time doing him a nice dinner and he refuses to eat it this time. Arrggh!

I always feel like this. The kids rarely eat something I put a lot of effort into.

I am a mean mummy. There wouldn't be the pudding if the meat wasn't eaten. And there wouldn't be an alternative to dessert either (except fruit).
But even bottomless pits can eat less some of the time. My daughter had a virus last week which made her exhausted and off her food (but nothing else). She didn't even want cake to eat. And I had to bribe her to get her to eat about 6 grapes for breakfast. This is a child who frequently eats cereal followed by toast for breakfast. In the end I told her she has to eat breakfast because her headteacher says so. She ate ooohhhh maybe 10 grapes that morning!

In my heart of hearts I want to say if you don't eat it all you won't get anythign else but the there is the problem with B getting up in the night and scavenging because he is still hungry like he did last night
