He sounds normal to me. My youngest is 4.5 and all of my kids out eat me frequently. The little one only does it on occasion, but the pre-teen aged ones have out eaten me at every meal and every day for over 2 years now.



Is he overweight? Active? If he is a healthy weight and active... let the boy eat.

I have two kids who don't eat a lot and I still have to go to the grocery store every week to restock the fridge. Is he overweight? Honestly he sounds like a growing 12 year old boy and unless he's overweight sounds normal to me. If you don't like shopping for him maybe your boyfriend should go grocery shopping for when his son comes to visit.
