5pm-1/2 cup of milk, shrimp pasta with a side of fresh peppers and some corn on the cob with butter, and 2 pieces of garlic bread.
Desert: Avocado smoothie

6:30pm (snack) 1/2 cup of milk, 5 celery sticks dipped in greek yogurt and pb

This kid eats a ton of food. lol The other day we went to the pub for lunch and I ordered her her own meal off the kids menu, grilled cheese and french fries, she ate the whole thing and at least 25 fries out of the massive amountthey give. lol

I dont see why she only weighs 18lbs. lol Oh and she drinks water in between snacks and meals. And eats my food off my plate or between meals. lol

Anyone elses kid eat like this everyday?

DS eats like that maybe more sometimes but I'm not worried cause he's really tall and skinny. I think he just has a fast metabolism. Plus he's super active. I just try to keep it all healthy stuff.

Our oldest is like that she grazes all day long. They are growing though, so they probably need it.

my 6 year old used to be like that (well still is lol) she was 17lbs at 1 year, and is about 36-37lbs now and turned 6 on april 27th. shes just super tiny, she actually put on one of my sons (hes 17months old) 18 month shirts the other day and it fit... last summer she tried to wear a pair of his 3-6m pants as shorts (they fit too, and actually kinda looked cute as shorts on her LOL)

Oh she is probably fine. It's actually pretty healthy to eat small meals throughout the day versus three really big meals spread apart.

That's like my 10 month old. He eats whole plates of food and he doesn't even have teeth yet lol.



My 4 year old is picky but he's getting better. At 15 months he would only eat maybe a jar or 2 of baby food a day and that's it.

There is no such thing as a kid eating too much healthy stuff. They know when they are full.

My 3yr old is tall and skinny (but healthy) and it's hard to get him to eat. My 13 month old is chunky and that kid eats all day if I let him!

Once in awhile is okay. DS likes lemons lol. The first time he had one, at 6 months, he ate everything but the skin without making a face.
