I think it depends on the child. My daughter is a bottomless pit. Your child is going to know when he/she is full (or in my daughter's case she's never full) but if your worried, talk to the dr.

I think all children are different but if you are concerned that your child is not eating what he/she should get those pediasure drinks. There are different brands(even generic) and they are chock full of vitamins. I gave them my little boy because he would eat nothing but bread at one point. I watched this thing on tv about this little boy that developed some third world disease(I can't remember what it's called but it's almost unheard of here because of our resources)Anyway he was only eating oatmeal and he wasn't getting enough vitamins. After watching that I got worried and got those drinks for my son. They smelled awful and I didn't think he would drink them but he loved them(i guess he thought they were a milkshake) so I hope that will help with what you wanted to know!

HONESTLY I DONT THINK THERE IS A RIGHT OR WRONG AMOUNT YOUR CHILD WILL EAT AS MUCH AS HE/SHE NEEDS THEY WONT STARVE THEMSELVES BUT IF U FEEL YOUR CHILD ISNT EATING ENOUGH YOU SHOULD SEEK ADVICE FROM A DR OR HEALTH NURSE
