I have five year old daughter. At her last check up she weighed 34 pounds. She usually has a pretty normal appetite but the last few days I can't get her to stop eating! Yesterday, she had a bowel of cereal for breakfast. At school, they had a Thanksgiving feast where she ate vegetable soup, cornbread, and apple crisp. The teacher told me she probably won't eat lunch because she ate so good during the feast. As soon as we got home she started whining about being so hungry and ate 1 1/2 bowels of chicken corn noodle soup. She then took a 2 hour nap, as soon as she woke up she wanted me to make chicken nuggets! I told it was only 4:30 and she needed to wait, she started to cry. I gave her some cereal to tie her over. About an hour later she ate another bowel of Chicken Corn Noodle Soup. at 8pm she was hungry again and ate a bowel of steamed broccoli!
I just don't get it! Is she going through a growth spurt? Do I need to be concerned?
