How much is 'within reason'

How many eggs, for example? Dh thinks it's fine to give 20m ds2 two eggs at one meal.

Or fruit. Ds2 is a total fruit-aholic. Often he will happily eat 5 clementines over the course of a morning, or 3 or 4 bananas. Left to themselves, my three dcs would probably demolish a 500g bag of dried apricots. And as for tomatoes or blueberries - well you'd better wear body armour if you intend to take them away from dd or ds2.

There are some things they can never seem to get enough of.

So is it all right to just let them stuff themselves with 'good' food?

I don't let mine eat unlimited citrus fruit or dried fruit as it gives them the runs!

I think bananas are limited to one a day.

Apples, grapes, melon ect ... i tend to just let them eat what they like.
