  • No set answer.
    Different children have different needs.
    Does he eat 3 meals, 6 meals, 9 snacks?
    Metabolisms vary.
    Some kids that age snack non-stop.
    More important is the overall consumption.
    I would say if he consumes more than 1 and half cups of healthy food a day and takes his vitamins and drinks 16 plus ounces of milk he is okay.

  • Hard telling. Just feed know when they are hungry or fully. My sons 15 months as well and he has 3 meals and 3 snacks a day. And the amounts vary. Somedays he eats a cow, the next day like a bird :)

  • If he eats, he's probably okay. He will eat when he is hungry and he won't when he's not. There's usually no reason to worry unless they go days and days without eating and become malnourished.

    What is a full day's meal for him might look like a nice snack for us!
