My 4 year old daughter is constantly saying she is hungry all day long. It's not like she doesn't get fed. I swear she is like a fat kid trapped in a skinny kids body. I just don't know what to do.

Your 4 year old and my 5 year old must be on the same diet. We always tease him because he eats VERY healthy but its nonstop. We call him our walking disposal, if anyone does not finish their plate he sure will. To make it worse he is SOOOOO freaking skinny I am not sure where it is all going.

My dad teases my son saying he has a tape worm....he claims that is the only explanation as to where all the food goes.

Medic that sounds a lot like my daughter. She eats a lot of fruits & stuff threw out the day along with whatever I feed her for breakfast, lunch, & dinner. Every time someone is eating she thinks she has too & asks who ever it may be if she can have some. She is constantly on the move so I'm thinking she's just burning energy & trying to refuel. LOL!

Make sure what she is eating is wholesome and satisfying, and that she had plenty to drink, but I know with my kids they all eat like horses before a growth spurt or if they are getting sick, not sure why but must be their bodies way of stocking up for when they are going to need it...
