    Well Dylan has more variety at dinner, but I'm trying to give him bits of what we're having so I guess his "big" meal is at tea time.

    I get confused when it comes to this : ) i always thought dinner was the last meal of the day (i'm not originally from UK) so i guess you mean tea for last,and dinner for lunch?

    We always have cereals for breakfast,then an hr or so after that we have eggs,hot dogs,cold meat or hot sandwaches so that 12pm roughly.
    Then our biggest meal is about 5pm,which is a full on 2-3 course meal.
    and then snacks before bed for my 2 year old (toast and jam,cheese dippers etc) and lots of fruit.
    After she goes to bed we usually have pizza and stuff like that,i ALWAYS get hungry around 11pm lol

    I guess her "bigger" meal is at dinner time but the proportions really are about the same, just the food that's different (she gets pastas, meats, etc more for dinner and tends to get sandwiches and fruits for lunch)
