do you notice your preteens eating a lot of grain?
i researched this and discovered growing requires a LOT of energy. with all the hormone change and puberty humans consume the most at this time.
dd who is usually a v. good eater - boy oh boy is eating mostly carbs. her carb intake has blown the roof. mostly rice. some flour.
i just love how their tastes change. the last two years dd was v. v. v. sensitive to bitter.
and now she loves bitter. she actually really enjoys coffee with milk and sugar mainly for the bitter after taste.
i am not worried about her carb intake. i am just astonished by how much she can eat and her food habits change.
do you see that with ur teens and preteens.
