My 3 year old is the same way. I hear "I'm still hungry" all day long.

Make food and say eat it!! Put in front of him don't give him a choice! He's the child your the parent remind him of that, try and be firm all the best :)

He can eat but make sure it doesn't have a lot of carbs like fruit but stay away from watermelon as a daily fruit cause it doesn't have fiber in it and always salads

Give free foods (anything under 5g of carbs) to fill the voids.

****he is a dustbin. He eats anything that comes on his plate. It seems that when his sugar is hi he stays hungry. Lower sugar and it went much better the last week. Thanks a lot for all the feedback

He will be hungry if he's sugers high, lots of water and movement helps, as all the advice above, (free foods) and lower carbs, the poor kid I hope he getting better
