My son would literally eat us out of house and home, and I refuse to feed him like a line-backer for an NFL team gearing up for a big game. He is only five years old, and eats very healthy food (no junk, whole foods, organic/natural) but still wants more food even after a very full plate that should more than fill him up. For breakfast he had two eggs, three slices of bacon, serving of pineapple, and a 1/4 cup of oatmeal and of course 6ozs of OJ to drink.
He is healthy as a horse, weighs 40lbs and is 42inches over all-the pediatrician is not concerned about anything.
Our grocery bills are not small because our son has multiple food allergies, and feeding him like he would want to would literally break the bank.
I refuse to let him over-eat and become heavy, and no neither my husband or I are heavy.

Most kids burn off all the food they eat. If your son is vary active. Letting him eat more food wont hurt him. But if he is not an active child. I will say do not feed him more they you already do.
