3 year old kicked out of daycare for not eating lunch
12/10/2010 at 08:14 AM

For the last 3 months my 3 1/2 year old has been refuing to eat lunch at daycare on and off. I have been very supportive of our provider in however she sees fit to deal with the situation. We are stricked at home that everyone sits at the table for meals and you have to take a bite of everything for however many years old you are --ie 3 bites for being 3 years old. We have some issues with her at the table but nothing to extream for being 3. Last night we got a ltter from our provider stating she will no longer cook for our child and we will need to feed her breakfeast before dropping her off and pack her a lunch everyday or find different daycare. Not only do we need to pack her a lunch but we have to pack certain things on a list she gave us. Is this really appropriate?? I do not blame her for being frustrated I just wish she would have told us we had 2 weeks to fix it or we would have to find other options. Any ideas of how to deal with this.

Thank you for your advice--esp. those in child care.

A sturdy bunkbed has always been an asset in my home.
