Do any of you guys' kids start eating more come winter time?
My son does this every winter. I use to worry when he was little cause he wouldnt eat much for several days then he would eat well for the next few days. The doctor told me not worry about it, he would eat when he was hungry and let him eat. He was growing properly and was healthy.
GOOD GRIEF! Every winter here comes the major growth spurt along with a huge appetite! For the most part he eats on an even kiel every day now until winter time and then OMG! It's like he can't get enough. And I'm not talking about junk food or sweets. Pasta, potatoes, veggies, and meat... he can put away the meat!
He wants to eat a full meal as soon as he gets home from school. Then a full dinner with his father and I and then 8:30-9:00 he wants a snack before bed. I feel mean when I tell him he has had enough.
For the last four winters from December to March he grew 2-3" (each year) in heighth also.
Will his growth spurts during the winter only get worse with his teen years coming up, or will they slow down?
