Hi candice Thanks will try it.
I think when mt son is hungry instead of eating he just drinks something to fill him up because he is playing. At crèche he eats this happens only when he is at home . I try and stick to the creche times when he is with me

Hi Courtney I have the same problem with my three year old, she would fill up on milk and not eat. We stopped giving milk 30 min before meals and wouldn't give her more until she ate her meal. I was worried she wasn't getting the nutrients she needed for brain development and growth, the dr suggested giving her pediasure (food supliment they drink) with her breakfast to help balance things out.
