This is how it would look

if I actually FED my son the teeny amount of food I know he is going to eat for lunch nearly every day:

Not a big eater that one.

How in the world does he get the energy he has then? LOL

Three Js said...

He will come around, eventually. This coming from another mother of a similar eater! :)

Kaci said...

Mmmm lunch! I'm hungry! =) Hope he starts eating better...I can't get my El to stop eating, she loves food. MMMMmmm. HA!

Connie said...

See....If I ate like a toddler. I'd be losing weight!!

Heather B. said...

Kendall eats the same way!!! Now Connor on the other hand eats like a HORSE nowadays!!!!! He will get there!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

That is so like a toddler, isn't it? I guess we just know that they know what their body needs! Ellyn Satter (who has a good blog) always says that!

Ms. Diva said...

Save this shot so when he is 16 and eating you out of house and home, you can remember the good ole days!!! :)

The Blonde Duck said...

I wish I had that problem.

Anti-Supermom said...

LOL, I tell people my garbage disposal is the best fed thing around here ;)

Brian Miller said...

they go through phases...i remember when we went through the pepperoni stage...that was it....or bologna...we were lucky to gt fruit in them...and then one day they started eating the house...smiles.

Crystal Escobar said...

Sounds just like my son.

James (SeattleDad) said...

We have those same plates. They get covered by a lot more food though. Lukas eats like a goat.

Midwest Mommy said...

I always put too much food on my little guy's plate too. I am always hopeful he will eat more.

Annie said...

I'm going to eat like him,ha.

Roxy said...

LOVE THE POST BELOW...hope it was a great day
As for the eater... truly 2 yr olds eat...truely eat good about every 3-4 meals... count and watch him!

Loukia said...

Oh man! That's hilarious! We need to switch kids for a while, my almost 3 year old is out of control with the amount of food he eats in a day! He's destined to become a football player, I swear...

The Blonde Duck said...

I hope ya'll have a good Thanksgiving!

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

This is so my daughter, she eats next to nothing as well!

HeatherOz said...

hahaha! Isn't that how it goes?!

hotpants™ said...

Little Man is the same way. Little Bit out eats us all!

ModernMom said...

This post got me thinking. I ALWAYS make too much breakfast for my younger one. I need to start giving her smaller portions. They really do just eat what they need don't they.

Ms Bibi said...

My goodness, you want to switch sons,lol?

Wait till he hits his teen years.

Kelley said...

Ha! Think of the money you would save if you just fed him what he would eat. What a funny post! BTW, I hope you had a happy birthday this past weekend. :)

WhisperingWriter said...

Haha.

Natalie can be the same way.

Amy said...

That is too funny.. looks like my little one's plate also.. Have a great Turkey Day...

Kailani said...

Well, at least it doesn't cost much to feed him! LOL!

Happy Thanksgiving!

anSeL said...

this is so cute!

anSeL said...

this is so cute!

The Blonde Duck said...

I hope he ate more for Thanksgiving!

Queenie Jeannie said...

I wish some scientist could figure out how that little amount of food could fuel such energy!! Our energy crisis would be OVER!!! LOL!

Melissa B. said...

I desperately need to think about portion size. But your little guy must eat a dozen times a day, oui?

The Blonde Duck said...

Have a magical Monday!

Helene said...

One of my sons eats like that, as well. I wonder how on earth he has the energy he is when he only eats like 20 calories a day!!

We have those same plates...Target, right? LOL!!

Dee said...

LOL! I am with you! I could pay about $5 per month and feed Evan!

JennyMac said...

LOL...that plate looks huge and I know it isn't because we have only very similar. MiniMac will eat giant amounts of about 10 things. It is always a gamble with the little ones and the food. lol.

Michelle said...

Our son used to eat very little.
Now that he is almost grown he eats a big snack when he comes home from school, then an hour later he eats supper.

Amy said...

hope all is well..

Manic Mother said...

Mine hardly eat a thing either...but they do love milk. Did you have a good Thanksgiving?

MamaJoss said...

'bout how much my kids eat these days combined -- what's with that? I had to chuckle.
