So we discovered my daughter has been hiding all the bits of her lunch that she hasn’t wanted to eat in the bottom of a spare bag that she hid behind the door in her room. There were sandwich remains at least 3 bananas and an apple. She even took it a step further and hid roast sweet potato in a pocket in there. This is not the first time she’s tried hiding food. The thing I don’t get is that she actually likes apples and bananas and sandwiches. I go out of my way to find things that she likes, etc. If she brings her food home in her lunch box the usual rule is to make her eat it before dinner (which is what I do with my son). Hubby wanted to cancel her going to a sleepover tonight, however we cancelled last weekend due to her bad behaviour (stealing chocolates if I’d been given as a birthday present from my boss) and I’d already confirmed last night with the other mum so don’t want to stuff them around again. I’ve tried taking away special toys and placing bans. Anyone else have punishment ideas and advice?
