Re: fighting with me almost 3 year old about eating

My mantra from day one is "meal times are happy times", with a stepford wife sorta smile. Last thing we want to do is make it a power struggle. Battle of the food. And maybe we shouldn't fix him something other than what we're having, but I know he's as stubborn as I was at that age and he'd just flat out refuse to eat. And if he doesn't do all that great at meal times, I make sure to offer him a snack after bathtime and before bed.
