For the past ...I'd say... two months, she's had extreme hunger and constantly wants to eat. She's been 30lbs for about a year, though she has grown in height a few inches. She is still 30lbs, despite her eating.
She will eat and eat and eat and eat. We don't offer junk food, and don't offer nutrient devoid foods- so it doesn't seem to be that her body is lacking in a specific nutrient. A few months ago she was anemic so we upped her meat and bean consumption and all is fine now.
She gets lots of protein also. She doesn't get many refined sugars.
Why is she eating so much? We're really tight on money and she's eating like a teenage boy... so please no flames! I'm looking for a solution to keep her full for a longer period of time, rather than asking for food at all times of the day.
we have a daily rhythm and it has always worked for us. we have set mealtimes. She just wants to constantly eat. She's begging me now and she just ate a huge dinner.
