I have a son whom will eat dinner at our usual time of 6:00Pm or so and then claim 2 hours later right before bedtime, he is STARVING!
Almost every night he does this, school nights or not. I can't let him go to bed hungry but he hardly eats everything on his plate as it is, though I give him his favorite foods.
Do any of your kids do this? Do you give in and let them eat something else?
Some times he wants a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a bowl of cereal.
Drives me nuts when he pulls this. Even after I tell him, you are not getting anything later so you better eat now!
I know he eats lunch around noon, and out by 3PM and it seems when he does not want to eat an afternoon snack, he does this. I think he just trying to say up most nights. And he does not go to bed til near 9pm, up at 7am.
I guess this is normal? Being he can be a picky eater.
