As I said, you don't need "the" before dinner. I wish I could share an easy way to remember when to use articles and when to leave them out, but I am not aware of one.

For dinner is correct.  Not on dinner.  The noodles are on the plate, but they're for dinner.


I would use number 1.  You don't need the before dinner.  I wouldn't say that number 3 is incorrect, but you don't need her.  It's obvious that it's her dinner since she's eating it.
