Default Help me!

Hey everyone...
Ok... I am new to the site and always new to monitoring what I am eating. I wouldn't say that I was a horrible eater before, but I only ate 2 meals a day, lunch and dinner. I usually stick with chicken or fish. But I am trying to plan out my meals better and eat 3 meals and 3 snacks throughout the day. I need some help, I don't know much about it and I need to know if I am moving in the right direction.... here is my daily menu...

2 hard boiled eggs and 6 oz of OJ - 7am
1 cup instant oatmal - 10am
Tuna and Lettuce with Tortilla, 1 tsp light mayo - 1230pm
100 calorie snack pack - 2pm
Banana and Carrots - 4pm
Fish Tacos (not fried) - 630pm

Of course I am uping my water intake throughout the day and prob drink 1 glass of 2 % milk at some point....

So.... is this the right thing? Any input would be great. I do not have a lot of money to buy specialty food I am a single mom and I work full time and go to school full time, so I need to make what I have work. Also fruit has a lot of carbs, are these good? Because I eat a good bit of fruit for snacks if so, but I do not want to over do it.
