  • 3-5 times... I have to force him to eat breakfast.. then between 11-12 he'll get a snack. One he gets lunch, then if hes been good, we'll do another snack. & then dinner.

  • 3, breakfast, lunch, and supper, with a couple small snacks in between if they're home. We eat to live, not live to eat...

  • If my kid ate 7 times a day he'd be obese. He's not a toddler,he's 9.
