Dear Sarah
Goodness me, you are going to exhaust me with all these questions! But I will try and answer them. Annemarie is correct. You need to post a new message every time as I do not look at old postings. You won't get sufficient calcium from 1-2 tablespoons of cottage cheese to supply your daily needs. If you have a kitchen scale weigh out 30g of peanuts to see how much a portion is. Otherwise take a tablespoon and measure out 2 tablespoons. A handful could be much more depending on how big your hand is! There is no harm in sticking to peanuts, just don't eat large portions. Drinking coffee with 2% milk without sugar is fine. Toning exercises like sit-ups are always useful to tighten muscles without building them up, but don't use heavy weights because this does build up muscles. The supper your propose should be fine, just don't eat very large amounts of meat (50g should be adequate).
Good luck again

Dear DietDoc,
Not sure if you are the correct person to ask about this. My 6 year old hardly eats much variations of foods as she is just so darn fussy and I cannot force her etc. She mostly eats for breakfast either a slice of toast or noodles with cheese and vienna or polony. For lunch its maybe three or four viennas or again noodles or toast and maybe a yoghurt or two. For dinner there are often times she has the same food, although we try force her to eat some rice, meat possibly some potato and we try either pumpkin carots etc. I know this is not enough but cannot force her to eat she just refuses.

What supplement is there that I can give her as I am worried that she develops an illness due to not eating correctly.

Foods she eats are: 2 minute noodles, viennas, polony, yoghurt, cheese, on the odd occasion bread, ham, cream cheese, marie biscuits plain, simba puffs, chicken pops, a bit of rice, potato, small portions of meat, chicken and very few veggies oh and fish fingers, smash, coldrinks like cream soda, fanta etc. and oros

Foods she does not eat: fruit, milk and just about everything else.

Do you have some advise for me,supplement wise etc. etc.

Thanks
Tania
