I never know if my son is getting enough to eat or not. I mean, I feed him until he starts throwing his food, but, I just wonder if it's enough.
He's 14 months.
Tonight he ate a jar of stage 3 Corn -- He loves it! 1/3 of a hot dog. 4 Chicken tenders, but only the chicken inside, not the breaded part. And 2 tator tots.
Is that just about average???
He's only in the 10th percentile in weight, so I'm trying to get his weight up a bit.

Not enough if you ask me, but she is a healthy weight and growing like a weed. I put plenty in front of her. and she eat until she is full. That is about all you can do. Just keep offering healthy foods. My 23 year old eats breakfast about 7:30-8 am doesn't finish until 9am She gets a snack at 9:30-10:00 if she asks. At about noon she has lunch. For breakfast this morning she had about 1/3 a cup of kix and 1/2 an ounce of raisins. With 9 ounces of whole milk. For snack it was a 1/3 a cup gold fish crackers and watered down V8 Fusion 9 ounces. For lunch it was 6 grape tomatoes, 1 slice of raisin bread, and a slice of cheese with another sippy of V8 fusion. We skipped afternoon snack, and for dinner we had 1/3 c. cream corn and 1/2 c. spaghetti and about about 2 ounces of milk. Both of my girls have slowed down eating. I figure they have finished there growth spurts for awhile.
