It's up and down. Some days she eats really well, and others, not so much. I wouldn't say she always eats three meals. Some days she does, but not always.
I've noticed lately she's more willing to eat bread. She went through a long phase of not wanting any bread at all, but on Sunday she asked me for a piece of bread three different times, and ate it all. She will also now eat rolls if we're going out to eat and get a basket of rolls. But what she will/won't eat is also always in flux.

He eats 3 meals a day plus a snack. He's a good eater. He never skips out on a meal.
Lucas is my only poor eater and he hardly eats breakfast, will eat a giant lunch (up to 3 sandwiches) and then 1-2 bites or less at dinner. That's why there's only a 3 lb difference between him and jude.
Most nights it's okay, but he gets distracted by other food and other things. We're finally eating in the kitchen again instead of the tv, which seems to be helping. He's always a total fruithead, it's getting him to eat everything else that can be a pain.
Trey eats 3 meals a day...with some snacks in between. He usually has a pretty voracious appetite. Sometimes i think he confuses boredom with hunger. Last night he ate three helpings of chicken & dumplings...and then about an hour or 2 later was saying he was hungry. DH gave him a naval orange, and then he asked for another immediately after.
I was/am spoiled with Trey. Trey will usually at least try anything i put in front of him, even if he says, upon looking at it, "i dont like it". Like, the chicken & dumplings last night. He insisted he didnt like it, but my mom poured him a bowl anyways.,..and then he announced "I LIKE IT!" after trying a bite. Olivia, on the other hand, will not put something to her lips if she doesnt like the way it looks. She makes up her mind the second she sees the food, and will shake her head "no" and push the food away when i try to shove it in. I've even held her mouth open and put a piece in, thinking "surely, she'll like it, if she just tastes it...". Nope.
How is your LO's appetite these days? I would say she has a good appetite these days. She does have issue with trying new things, and I sometimes have issues offering them over an over. I am trying to curb her snacks, and get more veggies in her. I don't think she is overweight, but I do notice her also eating out of boredom, etc. and want to keep an eye on it, b/c I am oveweight......
Does your LO eat 3 meals a day? Yep 3 meals and usually 2 snacks
Any foods they are eating more or less of than they did before? I would say she eats about the same as she always has....
