I have 2 5 year olds. They are CONSTANTLY eating! They eat breakfast, 2 snacks, lunch, 2 snacks, dinner, if they eat all of their dinner they get a special treat and usually eat another snack before bed. They are both really thin and very active. I don't know if they eat so much since they are so active, or if they are eating just to eat. It worries me because I struggle with my weight so I make sure a few of their snacks are low-calorie like carrot sticks and celery. I don't want them to struggle like I do, but I also don't want to cut them off from eating a lot since they are not overweight....
