My 18 month old eats A LOT! It might be normal, but he's so little I don't know where he puts it. He will eat his meals, his snacks and if I have a snack without him, he eats half of mine too. He's not obese. His dad is a beanpole that can eat McDonald's everyday and not gain a pound! Should I feed him when he's hungry. If he's anything like me...I'm an emotional eater. But his dad is super metabolism. Or should I deny him food outside of his meal/snack times?Answer Question

You're so lucky! Mine is a pain in the hiney when it comes to eating. Eight out of ten days, it's like pulling teeth to get her to eat. For instance, at lunch, I made her half a turkey and cheese sandwich with olive oil mayo on whole grain bread---sounds like a healthy lunch, right? Well, she ate the meat and cheese and left the bread. She never wants to eat anything except like cheese, bananas and crackers. Oh and she always steals my apples. She is not skinny, but I still worry about her getting enough fat and calories. I give her a vitamin with iron, because she rarely eats meat.
