I'm not really sure how to feed this creature who seems to be hungry all the time!
Breakfast is usually 1/2 a banana or a peach with maybe 10 bites of oatmeal, or a handful of dry cereal. He always finishes the fruit, but the oatmeal or cereal are hit or miss.
by 10am he's hungry again so usually I give him his cereal that he didn't finish at breakfast, a sippy with water, and maybe some yogurt.
lunch he will either eat some leftovers from dinner the night before or 1/2 a grilled cheese, and some animal crackers.
my problem that I'm not sure what to do with is from about 3pm onward. Today he had about 15 grapes and half a granola bar. He goes to the pantry, which he has figured out how to open, and starts taking more things out. I'm not sure if he's still hungry or not???
Yesterday he literally snacked from 3pm until 6pm when we had dinner. He also is at the point where he has little melt downs when he doesn't get his way... like if he takes a container of pretzels out and then I take them from him. I don't know if he's actually hungry (because he just ate) or if he's just trying to exert his will.
He almost seems ready for another little meal by 3pm to hold him till dinner. Actually... I may have just answered my own question!! Maybe that's what I should start doing.
Just as a refrence point... how many times a day are your little ones eating?
