My 5 year old daughter is a nightmare to feed.

Well, your problem may soon be solved with the start of kindergarten...


In the mean time...perhaps your daughter is just a snacker, and would prefer a number of small meals a day, rather then 3 larger meals.

Hi Dawn, I appreciate your suggestion.

Hi Jenny. We have that battle here too. I've even asked the kids if whining has every gotten them what they want and they will tell you no but can't seem to stop themselves.

Have you tried calling her meals, mini meals or breakfast snack, lunch snack? I don't know. I'm just wondering if she'd respond better to the different names. Hopefully school will keep her too busy to worry about having snacks all the time.
