Is my 2 year old a beast?

My 2 year old who is very skinny and never puts weight on, has just eaten 3 sausages, 2 pieces of toast, a banana, some blueberries, a chunk of cheese and two yoghurts! He is constantly hungry and I don't get why. My 5 year old can put it away but the baby seems to be lacking a 'full' switch.

I don't want to over feed him but he will have an absolute breakdown unless he has more food!

Is he like it at every meal? My 4yo has always been a big eater at breakfast time then less throughout the day so I don't worry about it. If it's every meal I still wouldn't be worried at this age but would keep a closer eye on weight, portion sizes and general intake of salt etc.

My 12 month old is like this. He has a 'reputation' in his nursery already blush

He never sits still though (and even when he's sleeping he's all over his cot like a dog chasing a cat in its dreams). So I guess he needs the calories!
