My son is very active in sports but he eats a ton of junk food and a ton of food in general. It doesn't seem like he is ever full. I hate to deny him food and I won't but I'm not sure what to do. After football practice last week I made him a rather large sandwich and he was still hungry and almost having a fit because of it saying I didn't understand how hungry he was, I don't want to make food a big issue but he is unhealthy right now.
His dad feeds him fast food for every meal and he has him 50% of the time.
He is getting overweight now and I'm getting scared.
He just got braces so I think he is limited on what he can eat. Any suggestions?
Last night I made him whole wheat/protein pasta with preggo sauce. Any other food suggestions?
ETA: He came home tonight after football practice and said he wasn't going to eat junk food anymore and he ate cherries for dinner.
