Snacking before dinner time
So getting Laura to eat healthy is the easy part. But now the issue is Laura is very dramatic at dinner. No matter what we fixed, she complains and claims she doesn't like it even though she loved it the day before. Dinner becomes like a battle than a family relaxing dinner.
She does get hungry between 3pm-5pm the most. If I give her dinner at 4-4:30, she's starving by 5:30 again. Our dinner time is around 5. Every time she ate at 5, she'd take three bites but then said she's full. So I had her eat with Jeff at 6:30. That worked somewhat but she still complains she doesn't like the food and drinking her milk is a tragedy.
I created a snack box so I fill up her snack box with healthy snacks. I explained to her that when it's empty that she won't get anymore snacks until tomorrow. I'm trying it for first time today. So far so good and hopefully she will eat dinner and get dessert tonight!
