DS is 3.5 is has been eating ALL day and is still hungry?
He had normal breakfast lunch and dinner and eating every 10 min in between. He eats anything from bread with butter, pizza bread, apples, pears, biscuits. 30 min after dinner he wanted cereal.
It's been like this a a few days now. I am not sure if he's really hungry or just bored.
Anyone else? Is this normal?

Could be a growth spurt? My 2.5 year old is like this at the moment. I usually try to put him off for 5-10 min and if he's doing something fun but still asks me for food, I give him a snack.

My DD goes through these phases. She's only 12-13kg but will eat 2 weetbix with milk, a piece of toast, an apple, some cheese or yoghurt and some rice crackers - all before lunch! Daycare often comment on how much she can put away for her size! She's totally healthy though and I make sure it's mostly healthy food that she's demolishing!

Did you go out or were you at home? My niece is like this but we find only on days she's at home cause she's bored - plus try offer more protein rich foods that will keep him full like boiled eggs, yogurt, cheese, meats , nut butters etc

How can I tell if he's got worms?

I did think it might be growth spurt.
He eats like crazy mostly when we are at home. His eating is quite normal when we are out. That's why I think he might be bored? I know I eat when I am bored lol.
