The Very Hungry Kindergartener

April 17, 2011 by Michelle

There once was a little girl who was not a little egg on a leaf in the light of the moon. No, she was a little girl with a stomach bigger than her eyes.

At 8am, she ate a bowl of Cheerios with three slices of turkey bacon, a glass of rice milk, and some strawberries.

At 10:45am, she ate…
a waffle

a plate of scrambled eggs

two peaches

five slices of bacon

and two sausage links.

She was still hungry, so she went back for seconds. And she ate…
five slices of bacon

one and a half sausage links

and two peaches.

At 1pm, she was hungry, so she ate a banana.

At 2pm, she was hungry again, so she ate some mango.

At 4:30pm, she was at Costco and had samples of chocolate chips (whoo hoo – Callebaut’s dark chocolate is dairy free!) and crackers.

At 5pm, she was hungry again, so she ate a quarter pound Costco hot dog.

At 6pm, she asked, Mommy, have I had dinner yet?

Mommy groaned and insisted she had. We’re waiting for her to crawl into a cocoon of her own making and come out in two weeks as a beautiful butterfly.

    I thought it was just my Kindergartner who ate like this!!

  • Jen U


    Wow, you weren't kidding…she out-ate ME, today! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love that you've got a faux Haiku for what your kid ate. Nicely done! I can relate, sometimes my 3 year old can eat more than me! I'm like where on Earth does it all go? Thanks for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sometimes they just get that growth-spurt hunger that can't be satisified.

  • Tara R.


    I gained five pounds reading this. Oh to have the metabolism of a little kid again.

  • Pat


    I be she's about to have a growth spurt!

    When my youngest was playing football, he'd come home from school, open the fridge, grab food to eat, then at 6 he'd eat a big dinner, then he'd go look in the fridge again for something else to eat.

    Taylor – Not just yours, but my first grader never did that. He still doesn't…

    Jen – No kidding! And outeating a pregnant woman is pretty impressive ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ShesWrite – Ooo I didn't even notice, but I totally do, don't I? It's odd how she can eat so much and still be barely on the growth chart for weight.

    Susie – That's got to be it, as she was still gnoshing all day today, too!

    Tara – No kidding! Then again, I never had metabolism like that. 37 pounds and 46+ inches tall. Sheesh.

    Pat – Something. Buuuuuut that sorta means all the spring and summer clothes I've bought her wono't fit anymore. Ugh!

    I wish Jillian had her appetite. I'm begging her to eat more every day ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Heather E


    WOW! That's a lot of food! (but I'm totally jealous!)

  • Claire


    My five year old wants to eat from the minute he wakes up until the minute he goes to sleep. It's crazy.

  • Michelle


    Kelly – I don't have that issue. She doesn't normally eat like that, but holy cow was she hungry that day! As long as Killian is growing though….

    Heather – Don't be jealous. That's a LOT of food, and it makes me sick to my stomach to even think about eating that much!

    Claire – Hmm apparently this isn't that uncommon. Mister Man was never like that to this extent, and she usually isn't. Here's hoping it isn't a phase; I don't think I can afford it!

    Awesome. I love it! She's a girl after my own heart.
