F seems to prefer to snack/graze constantly and it's actually starting to drive me up the wall. He is constantly asking for a snack. This morning, for example, he had 2 helpings of cheerios followed by 1 weetabix for breakfast and then a yogurt. A short while later he had a few bites of toast and then pestered me for some cheese. Then he had half a boiled egg. A while after that he wanted strawberries and shared an apple with me and has just now had a couple of breadsticks and a bit of cheese. I told him lunch won't really be long but he wasn't having any of it. Is anyone else's toddler like this? If I hear the word 'snack' one more time today I think I'm going to lose my mind!

How old? I have a 3 - nearly 4 yo who does.not.stop.eating. I had a conversation with him this morning about how he makes it through the day at pre school because they don't allow him to graze like he does here, and it's not like I let him either. He is just always asking, pleading, whining for more to eat! This morning he's had cheerios x2, biscuits, blueberries, an apple, a carrot(!), toast, some of my toast and I am making him wait until 12pm for lunch. You should hear him complain about that....
I think it's a phase, unfortunately his 7yo brother is in the same one when he's home too!

He's coming up to 2 years 4 months. He had a sickness bug and then chest infection a month or so ago and barely ate so maybe he's making up for it now. It's hard work isn't it? I had to smile at the carrot though :-)

My almost 2 year old is exactly the same as this!
