Our son will be 16mths at the end of the month...we've never specifically made anything special for him for supper. He just gets his dinner (same as us), if he's still hungry he'll have some fruit (whatever is in the fridge, summer here so there is plenty to choose from). Then about 15-20mins later it's his bedtime so he'll have a bottle of warm milk, taken off him as soon as it's finished, about 150/160ml (about 5oz I think).

Thanks for the ideas i might try the ready break... As it'd be nice and warm to settle her off to sleep :) She greats her breakfast when she wakens, obviously, then dinner around 12:30 and 1:30 then , a bottle in between that and her tea, her tea about 5 or 6 then supper before she goes to bed... i wouldn like giving her more dinner before she goes to bed :)
Thanks for all the advise girls :) Much appreciated :)

My daughter had weetabix or ready break as it is nice and warm and soothing. I also used to give her rusks with warm milk. Now she is 2 years 3 months she has some fruit or malt loaf or a taste of what we are eatting. We like to eat as a family but she eats her main meal at 5.30pm and we eat at 7pm. In time she will not have this snack as she will be in bed already, but for now she goes to bed at 7.30pm until he day naps stop.

For supper: yogurt, cottage cheese, steamed vegetables, beans, noodles, applesauce, mashed potatoes, wheat bread, soft fruits (bananas, pears, peaches). Before bed, you could try mixing a little fruit in with the cereal. She might like the taste better.
