A mother of two has expressed concern about the daily diet of her children and admits that she is worried that she is feeding them too much.
The Australian woman shared her three-year-old and one-year-old’s meals and asked other mothers to eat more than they should.
‘Do my children eat too much in one day? Not enough? I need some guidance, “she wrote on Facebook.
“For the past three days they have had two pieces of French toast or two scrambled eggs and two toasts for breakfast, as well as a banana and a handful of blueberries.”

She continued: ‘Banana bread, an apple and some ham for morning tea. Lunch was a sandwich with pear, ham and tomato.
‘Afternoon tea is brown rice waffles with Vegemite and a side of egg and potato salad. The dinner has been spaghetti bolognese, but the sauce consists of vegetables. It is one that I make myself ‘.
‘Snacks during the day is the lunch box, they each have one. Contains coconut rolls, raisins, messy monkeys, dry grains, faba bean chips, fruit “lollipops”, a jam sandwich, Vege chips and two rice crackers with Vegemite ‘.
Most Facebook users have reassured the mother that she should not worry, especially if her children are not ‘overweight’.
“Lunch looks good to me! I prefer to eat rather than not, you offer good healthy filling options, so I say keep doing what you are, “wrote a person.
“If they aren’t obese, it should be good. My children hardly eat, which is frustrating, “said another.
“You are fine. Maybe try to take out the carbohydrates a little and add a little more protein.
“You have eggs and that’s good protein anyway, but even good fats like yogurt,” another suggested.
“If they are healthy, feed them. As long as it is usually healthy food, no problem, “said a person.
The mother said her children are not overweight. Her three-year-old is in size 3-4, while her 1.5-year-old is in size 1.
“Don’t worry, just buy a larger fridge and find a way to make some more money,” a mother said.
