5 sign You could be feeding your kids too much

 Welcome back to my blog.
figure out if your kids has too much on his plate. Read 5 sign you could be feeding your kids too much below :

1. They push the food around on their plates and don't finish what you give them.
2. They're not very hungry for the next meal or snack-which they normally would have eaten.
3. The amount on their plates is close to the amount you have on yours.
4. The first thing you do when your kids are upset, stressed, fatigued, or cranky is hand over a snack. What they may really need is just a hug, some quiet time, or something to drink instead (thirst is often confused for hunger-ditto tiredness).
5. Their clothes are becoming tight in the chest, waist, or rear, even though the length is still fine. "A lot of parents don't notice if their child gains a few pounds-it's the whole 'love is blind' thing. But they will pick up on pants or shirts that suddenly look snug," notes American Dietetic Association spokesperson Bonnie Taub-Dix, R.D.
