Do your kids ask you if it's lunch time right after they just got done eating breakfast?

My kids do this almost daily and ask multiple times at that.

  • My kids think if they eat a little for breakfast, they can eat a snack a half hour later. I caught on to their trick real quick. Now, when they say theyre hungry right after breakfast, they have to sit down and eat more cereal. It may just be that your kids prefer whatever you make for lunch over what they eat for breakfast. Try to get them to eat a little more at bfast time, and tell them...make sure youre full because isn't for a few hours

  • My son always asks for a sandwich as soon as he's done eating breakfast. I give him some water, and offer him more breakfast, and he usually won't eat anymore, but he's thirsty.

  • Gosh, I'm having this problem with my 3 yr old! About 20 minutes after bfast, "I'm hungry! Let's make lunch!" Umm, no. Here eat a banana! Any time he eats a snack or meal, when he's done he tells me he's still hungry. I've been trying to figure out if he's just bored and wants to eat to fill the time, if he's just thirsty, or if he's seriously still hungry. When he tells me this I offer fruit or yogurt or something with some nutritional value. I think what I'm going to start doing is making sure he gets a good serving of lean protein with each meal/snack. He's not a big meat eater, though, so sometimes that proves to be a hard task.
