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.
