Anyone else got a toddler who won't stop eating?

Let's Ask Livvy 
Kids food intake can vary enormously eating wildly different amounts. Hungry days often link to developmental growth spurts. If it is worrying you, take a food diary with times your toddler is eating and review it over a week- often over a week it all evens out- but if you're concerned chat to your GP or health visitor. If you find that your child is eating little an often and not full meals then this may be more habitual- i.e. They have learnt to graze through the day as opposed to having 3 meals. Taking a food diary will also help you to see when you ar giving food and how much.

Thanks Livvy. He eats a lot every day! I don't want to give him an eating disorder by denying him food when I think he's had enough, but I don't want to deny him if he needs it either. I will start keeping a diary, thank you, and also need to make a health visitor appointment to get him weighed.
