teach your child to listen to his body’s signals. If he says he’s full, take his word for it. As adults, we have learnt to ignore that signal so often that it no longer comes and many adults end up eating without the ability to stop.
I have a little rule in my house, where if any of my children say they are full after a meal, they are allowed to leave the table (even if they barely ate), but if they leave the table, they are not allowed back if they change their mind. So, they have learned to think twice and ‘ask their tummy’ if they are really full or just want to get to play.
