Damn is he tall? My 4 yo isn't even 40 pounds, he's just under, 38 pounds, but he's short for his age. He's always hungry too lol

I just try to stick to whole foods, protein, a whole grain and a green veggies for his meals.

Aren't you just a bitty thing? Lol. That is a HUGE two year old, though I'm guessing he is really tall. My almost three year old weighs 28lbs. You may want a second job if you expect to keep him fed. My brother ate like that as a teenager when he stayed with me. My grocery bill was almost $600/month and I spend less than $500 now for 5 people.

I feel your pain, my almost six year old is always hungry lol and comes up to my chest already. I just keep healthy snacks on hand from him and try and put a protein of some sort with every meal.

I feel your pain, I have a almost 90 pound 9 year old
Who would eat everything if I let him.

Meals I have used to fill mine up, soups, beans, sandwiches (I make weird sandwiches with lots of veggies or fruits).

Or things that take awhile to eat and chew, I think it takes awhile for
My boy to notice he's full.

But I'm afraid for when mine becomes a teen. I

I grew up with 3 brothers and the amount of food that they can eat
Wow!

Oh shit, I can't afford that! Lol damnit. His dad is tall and solid so I guess that's where he got it from :(.i knew I should've had coitus and reproduced with a small man. Lmmfao

Get the kid hooked on salads.  Seriously, all that cellulose and fiber really fills them up and keeps them full.  I had a 40 pound two year old with a voracious appetite too, she's now a 45" tall 60 pound 3 1/2 year old.  She loves salad, especially with avocados, mushrooms and cottage cheese.

My son was 40 at two. he is 6 now and is evening out. Finally!!! and he is ALWAYS hungry. Our nutrition dr said plenty of raw veggies with some fruits added in. We try to stay away from chips. that's my kids addiction so we keep them out of the house for the most part. (he gets on snack sized pringles in his school lunch tho. cause I'm a softy shhhhh)
