I make my daughters pb&j and pb&h all the time for lunch but they NEVER eat the bread, they lick the filling out and leave the bread in a pile. What do I do? How do I get them to eat the bread? they are 2 and 3 years old. Also my eldest daughter makes an absolute MESS when she eats. She sits in front of a mirror and puts her food all over the mirror and the table and the floor beneath her. I don't know how to keep her from doing this without hand feeding her again and I don't think that's right either. I know I'm not the only mother with this issue so please please help me with ideas.

I have a 2yr old and a 7yr old and I've always gave them small snacks between meals to make sure they weren't too full to eat lunch or dinner. That has worked for me and still does. I also try to keep them busy so they are not always wanting a snack.

hope this may be of some help. :)
