When all the other adults in their life tell them they should eat as much as they want at every meal since they are growing kids?
Not to mention I'm pregnant and should be eating more then normal but if I eat more they HAVE to eat more. They want to eat 2 adult portions at every meal. Today I made mac & cheese and chicken nuggets. I barely got any because all my kids had to have double helpings.

You give them the correct amount of food and tell them that this is what is healthful for their body and why and don't give them more unless it is something like veggies or fruits which are full of vitamins and nutrients. Borrow a video or book from the library on nutrition that they will understand and use it to teach them how to eat properly. Also make sure the foods they eat contain the proper amount of fiber so they aren't as hungry as they would be with empty foods.
