my son is almost 28 months. .
he is average for height and weight.

if your 2 year old asked for seconds on some foods, would you allow it?
granted, he gets his three meals, & two snacks.

(i'll add that his dad has an extremely fast metabolism. a little over six foot, & 139lbs. skinny as all heck & can eat like a cow.)

this is no super serious question or anything, i would just like to know what other mama's would do.

Yes. If she is still hungry, I will give her more. If not, all she does is go after my sweets stash. Lol.

I probably would.. I just wouldn't give him as much as he had the first time.. He is a growing kid after all(:

When my child is hungry, I feed him. It doesn't matter when, or how much, only how healthy. He can eat any healthy food at any time in any amount. I wouldn't let him chow down on greasy fatty foods, but if he wants seconds of his healthy meal? Absolutely I would let him have some.

Yes I would. There is no reason to deny food unless for medical reasons IMO.

Yes. My 2 yr old goes through phases where he won't eat shit. Then other phases where he will eat seconds and thirds at meals. And, I let him. I will NEVER deny my child food. Ever.

Gosh. I wish my son would ask for seconds.
Instead he's asking for Nilla Wafers -__-

His diet consists of hot dogs, noodles, mac n cheese, humus, avocados, (guacamole) and grapes.
It's almost impossible to get him to eat anything else.
