The first thing I would do is take the junk food out of his diet. Instead of cocopops give him oatmeal; added fiber will help to fill him up.. If he's having sandwiches at lunch, make sure they are on whole grain break - not white, and are filled with lettuce and tomatoes or that it's a peanut butter sandwich. The mixed fruit should be fresh fruit and not the type out of the can that is dripping with sugar syrup. My son hit a growth spurt at about 4 and has been able to outeat me ever since. He's super active so he's remained very thin - almost too thin. Little boys eat a lot but teenage boys eat HUGE amounts - LOL!
