Why does my baby eat so much?
Q: My 9-month-old daughter has a big appetite. She eats everything offered to her throughout the day. Should I make a schedule for her eating habits?
A: Monali, leave her be, let her have a good time trying all these new foods and enjoy the mument! Your daughter is still doing a lot of growing, and if she is eating throughout the day, I am guessing she is also pretty active.

Think of food as a fuel: If you leave your car in the garage, you only need to fill the tank occasionally. But if you’re running lots of errands, you need to fill up more often. Eating small amounts often is actually healthier than three large meals because it doesn’t cause overeating, as long as what she is eating is nutritious.
