My son is 4 years old and always hungry. Even after a full meal. Every half hour wants to eat. Ne is not fat. But I worry something is wrong.

That is hard to keep up with! If he is not overweight I wouldnt worry, but maybe check his meals re plenty of protein. Protein makes you feel fuller for longer and more satisfied. I agree its probably a growth spurt. It will hit again when he is a teenager!

Im not going to pretend I know much because I really don't. My son is almost 3 and he goes through pretty dramatic spurts with eating then not eating. Usually he only eats a very small bowl of cereal, then doesn't want lunch then eats maybe 4 bites of dinner and is satisfied. Other times he asks for more, more, more. I have been told by my Dr. that this happens to toddlers. It should be a phase and should pass. If his metabolism is working great and he is not gaining more than he should then he is just fine! :D good luck!
