Your little one now comes to you at times and asks for a biscuit or cookie. This is because he has started to understand the feeling of hunger. He has learnt to understand his body’s needs and is also expressing it in his own way. He now knows when he is feeling thirsty and when he is feeling hungry and how food or water can help overcome these feelings.
What you need to know
It is always good to talk to your child and make him understand what hungry means. All of us are born with the ability to judge when we are full but kids this age may not be able to understand these signs and ignore them. This can lead to overeating and excess weight gain.
