My 2 year old daughter wants to snack all the time

Why is that?? She's always busy playing so I don't get it... I was thinking it's because she knows how to open the fridge or because her g-pa and g-ma lets her snack 24/7...

Should I call her doctor and see what she says?

Help please!

  • Her stomach is the size of her fist. What you consider a snack is a full calorie meal for her. She needs six or seven of those a day, or 40 calories per inch of height.

  • It's normal for kids to eat small amounts often. They have small stomachs and are active all the time.
