my kids were never on three square meals- they get hungry too often and their stomachs are so small they can't fit a whole 'meal' into them.
As long as you're giving him healthy snacks like fruit, cheese, pastas, veggies, whole grain crackers, etc, keep it to 4-6 'meal' times a day rather than 3. I would keep to a regular schedule though. If he hasn't eaten much within 1/2 hour time slot, tell him he's done until whatever next time period (two ish hours away) and take away his plate. :D
