Boys and Eating

You always hear about how much teen boys eat, but what about 7 year old boys? Are they suppose to eat as much as an adult, too?

Sam, my 7 year old, can really pack away food, especially if it is food that he likes.

I can't order him kids meals anymore. They are much too small. I've begun ordering off the grown up menu for him.

Take a recent trip to Jack in the Box for lunch. He can finish an Ultimate Cheeseburger, small curly fries, and 16oz chocolate shake. That works out to a whopping 1991.8 calories and 119 grams of fat.

We're not sure where he's putting it all.

Oh yes, kids can pack away the calories without packing on the fat [smile].

As I look toward having my kids arrive, I'm really not sure how much my food budget is going to increase... but I have a little trepidation [laughing].
