  • Why don't you sit down & eat with them while they are eating. OR, maybe give them a bit more food. Maybe they are still hungry. Sometimes kids go through growth stages where they are always hungry & need lots of calories to keep up with their fast growing bodies.

    I personally would not feed my kid food off of my plate, i have before when DD was a baby, but not now. I think it will encourage bad habits. I would get pretty annoyed if i had kids hovering over my food after they just ate. I personally would nip it in the bud. It's kind of rude to eat off of others plates i think. If she wants more food, i will put more on her own plate.

    I don't however think that it will encourage obesity. Just sounds like your kids are still hungry to me.

  • Why are you eating seperately? To avoid the situation, you should all sit down for a family dinner and then you each have your own plates, and you're each eating the same food...

  • They just ate! They cannot be hungry. Tell them to go play!!!

  • I guess that depends on what you're feeding them...not necessarily that they are eating more.
