My son is almost 5 years old and is completely OBSESSED with food. He is always asking when the next meal or snack is. This has gone on for several years now. He can be getting away from the table for lunch or supper and ask when snack time is. Ive showed him on the clock when each meal or snack is so he knows but he still is so concerned with it. If we eat supper late and dont get done til almost snack time he still wants a snack. He definitely has never gone hungry. We stick to a pretty regular schedule. Breakfast 8ish, snack 10, lunch 12, snack 3 and supper 6-7, snack 8ish. I am just very concerned that if he keeps worrying about food he is going to become obese. Right now he is little for his age, but thats because i am small and so is his dad. He is a very high strung kid, always bouncing off the walls, so he pry uses up alot of calories. Has anyone had any issues with this? What have you done?
