Re: Do you limit food intake?
We do limit our 8 and 10 yr olds , in the sense that if the kids want seconds, I ask that they let their food settle for 15 minutes and then if they are still hungry they can have more. We definitely limit treat servings and also don't let them go crazy if we go out for pizza or any other "fast food" type food. I also think its important to teach them at potluck style events to make sure they only take what they will eat and make sure everyone is served before they go for more.
