  • he used to have a big appetite, but mostly for snacks, but since i have cut down on most of his snacks, he eats only a little, and doesnt act like hes hungry at all. he eats a few bites at each meal

  • My son (almost 3) goes through different phases. Sometimes he'll eat all day long if I let him and other days I'll have to keep him at the table until he takes a few bites of his food.

  • It depends. For example at his birthday party he ate 3 hot dogs a small ziplock back of pop corn and some chip or one day we took him to mcdonalds he ate all ten of my chicken nuggets and all his apples but sometimes he doesn't eat at all.
    Like last night he ate one biscuit for dinner.

  • i am so suprised that my 2yo is still alive..... he hardly eats a thing but once in a blue moon he eats a whole bunch (like once every 2 weeks lol). he is growing normally so i guess maybe he can store up fat like a camel or something lol
