How to get your child eating well at home and shool?

My daughter starts school this week and is a very bad eater. Well I say that but she was good at nursery as they had time to help her and she is good with my mum. When it comes to eating at home she refuses, blanks me and cries and runs away! I've tried being firm, gentle, star charts ect but just can't get her to sit and enjoy a meal with me. I'm worried as the school she is going to is very large and no one will have time to help her eat! What do I do about school and at home?

most schools have a routine when it comes to food and play breaks. my children's school makes the children sit down to eat in class or in a room near by before they are allowed to leave for play. ask the school how their lunch breaks work, and see what they can come up with to address your child's needs.
