DD is like this and she's much bigger if that makes you feel better.
She's 39" and 35ish pounds.
She has never gone through no eating phases, but she can be picky. She has been eating less lately
. But she is super solid with a tummy. She's not fat exactly, but definitely not thin.
I have a weight issue (but need to remember it is medically based) and DH is stocky so I have to work at not worrying.
We do whole foods and I keep an eye on sugar, even healthy sugar. Until recently, we didn't even do crackers, but now use them for as portable snacks 1-2 times a week.
Meals might breakdown like so...
Wake up: 5oz milk
Bfast: Greek yogurt or
cottage cheese or
Snack: cheese or crackers or homemade pumpkin bread or a banana
Lunch: Chili with turkey, beans, spinach tomatoes or
organic frozen pesto pasta or
organic frozen indian vegetarian meal, fruit
Dinner: hamburger (no bun), pickle, beans, exactly 1 french fry if we have them (Dd doesn't eat them, but likes to lick off ketchup) or
homemade pizza or
spaghetti (with spinach added) or
kielbasa with sauerkraut
I think this is a pretty decent diet.
My feeling is we won't really know if there's a true weight issue for several years b/c DD is still actively growing. So we try to eat healthy and keep her active, let her see us exercising and invite her to join in and just not worry about it.
But yeah, she's a chunk.
We do get flak from the ped but they can Suck It.
