Re: Do i let her drink or make her eat?

is her dr concerned about her weight? DD was about that at that age. She is 4 now and is 30 lbs and 41 in. Her dr is not concerned.

As for the drink. I would just let her drink since it isn't every meal.

Does she like boiled eggs? You could boil a dozen to keep in the fridge for the mornings you don't have time to cook eggs. My kids love boiled eggs!!

I often 'scramble' a single egg in the microwave for DD- it takes exactly 55 seconds.

But aside from that, I would let her drink if that's her natural rhythm- on the days that DD boycotts breakfast I give her one of those drinkable probiotic yogurt-type drinks on the way to daycare which seems to tide her over til morning snack.

Re: Do i let her drink or make her eat?

Some of the responses here are making me feel somewhat mean. My son isn't sensitive to foods and doesn't have any supplemental things, but at dinner especially her refuses to eat if he has a drink, so I simply don't give him anything until he's eaten at least some food.

Can you give her a couple (non-negotiable) options on what she eats for breakfast? Like cereal, or oatmeal, or dinner leftovers? I don't consider what gets eaten that big a deal as long as it's somewhat healthy, and since most small children like having some say in everything, it might make things a little easier at breakfast.
