Both eat all.the.time. Healthy food though so I don't care, but some days I'm just like wow, you ate more than me and I'm pregnant and always hungry!
LOL!!! that is exactly how both my boys are. #3 ended up being a girl so we will see but she nurses a ton.

There are some days, espeically Saturdays when they seem extra hungry so I put a plate on the island and put a bunch of veggies-- carrots, broccoli, celery w/pb and raisins, cucumbers slices, pepper slices. They are allowed to eat as much of that as they want. Really cuts back on the "mom, I am soooo hungry" comments all. the. time. I also make sure they have cups down so they can get all the water they want.
