Okay how much do you give to your toddler for a meal?

Just interested as i'm worried ds doesn't know when to stop eating, sometimes.

Should I be worried at all?

Any advice?

As long as he is a healthy weight, I would'nt worry, far better than having a child that bearly eats and being worried all the time that they are hungry.

I just give ds a medium portion then let him ask for more if he wants it (usually!) He loves food however his appetite really varies. Sometimes he is starving and other times not too bothered. I wouldn't worry.

He was 28lbs 9 at last weigh in at the end of July. Before that at the start of April he was 24lbs. It just seemed alot of weight to put on over 3 months.

His weight is fine.

Is he active? That could be the reason for his big appetite.
