Food Obsession

I have a nearly 9 month old daughter who has become obsessed with food.
She is having milk in a morning with porridge, dinner and a pudding, pasta for tea and milk for bed but still seems constantly hungry all the time. She screams at people if they are eating and expects that she should have some too.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so how did you deal with it? Am i not feeding her enough?

It doesn't seem like she is eating too much. Does she have snacks in between her meals and how big are portions?

how many milk feeds is she having? If she isnt having daytime feeds then you could add in snacks mid-morning and mid-afternoon. It's normal for them to want a bit of what someone else is and if I am eating I do offer my lo's a bit of it too (if they havent snatched it out of my hand first!!)

My dd is 10 months and very, very similar smile If I'm having something that it's ok for her to try I'll give her a small bit, and she's thrilled beyond all measure. If she can't have any i try not to eat it in front of her, cuz I feel a bit mean...
She only has milk first and last thing, and while she doesn't seem hungry all the time, she looooves! food. (Hmmm, sounds familiar! grin)

She's probably yelling at people who are eating through curiosity of food not hunger. I'd just keep giving her tastes of your food. My ds is the same, he just wants to be included.

Mine always wanted to join in every mealtime, but they definitely want something every 2 hours or so at least in the daytime, food or milk.

Thanks for all the answers, i think i might try the snack idea and glad that it may just be a food curiosity thing.
Will see how it goes.
Again thanks for the words of support and glad to see that i dont have the only baby that loves her food!!!!
