Ds seems to have an empty pit of a stomach! Lol.
He is unable to regulate his hunger & will eat until sick if I let him. And I hear " I'm hungry " more times than I can count each day. He is medically and physically well in the average weight range and very active.
During a day he eats... (this changes obviously but still the same portion amounts)
Cereal, fruit & cup of almond milk.
2 or 3 pieces of toast.
3 mangoes. 10 fresh dates
Rissotto with lots of veggies or leftovers.
An apple, handful almonds or peanuts or roasted chickpeas.
Some crackers and peanut butter.
Bowl of custard.
2 large helpings of dinner (which is usually roast veggies/felafels/lentil pie/spaghetti etc)
+ another cup of almond milk, couple cups of diluted juice and lots of water.
And this is with me restricting his intake. Is this an average amount for a 5 year old to eat?
