How are your kids appetites? Do they go through phases where they eat a significant amount more or less? How old are they and do you find any changes in appetites seem to happen at certain ages?

It depends n the growth spurt for the younger one... The older ones can consume every speck of food in the panty, frig and freezer...

And still insist they are hungry...lol

They go through phases and it can be different from one day to another.

My 5 month old eats less than his brother did at his age, but still more than the "average" 5 month old.

My 3 1/2 year old "snacks" all day long, rather than large meals. He hardly eats anything unless he's growing then you can't fill him up.

 DD is usually a good eater. She does have stages when she will eat more and times when she will eat less

my toddler is 2, she is normally a pretty good eatter but she does have her days where she really doesnt want much of anything.
my middle child is 9, he has adhd and takes meds for it. they supress his appetite but I try to make sure he gets a good breakfast and dinner. lunch is where he doesnt really want to eat.
my oldest son is just shy of 12, he also has add, takes med but he will eat like a horse if I let him.
