    Default should we be worried ... wont stop eating

    I think he is fine but man do I wonder sometimes. DS is 22 months and eats none stop. no signs of worms - a good solid mass.

    He loves working with his dad, that would be me.

    just today he found a pack of jelly beans that i did not even know was in the kitchen draw. He had his breakfast, finished his sisters and cleaned up his brothers. snacked all morning, had lunch and then finished mine. In all of that he devoured a box of fruit slices. No bananas as we had run out and i think he finished all the strawberries too.

    Im not seriously concerned .... but .... if you think I should be

    otherwise

    My son is the same. Any one have any suggestions how to get more protein in him in the morning as he will not eat egg or nuts.

    Both of our kids eat like machines and have done since birth! Sometimes I worry but they eat really well and are a normal weight for their height. Clearly it's all going into growing and energy consumption.

    My DS is like this. We used to have to send him to kinder last year with two lunches but hid one from him or he would eat the lot at morning tea (this was the teachers suggestion). He has slowed down now though to a more normal/slightly hungrier level.

    He'd deffinatly have the baked beans and wholemeal toast! Maybe goats cheese at a push, the rest, no way! It's hard to fill him up because he won't eat, eggs, fruit (apart from banana), smoothies, porridge, raw veggies, omelette.... The list is endless
