He will be 12 on the 22nd of this month.

And he's skinny. I had one of those. Soon, he'll get into working out to combat the skinniness, imagine how much he'll be eating then 😳

Mine got a job and moved out of the house when he was 17, and realized how expensive food was. He needed to eat constantly though, he had such a high metabolism. Once he was living with his girlfriend, her main complaint was the huge grocery bill. And they shopped smart, ate no junk (both health fanatics).

The metabolism slows down a tiny bit around age 30.........

One of my grandsons' can eat 10 loaves of bread a week.I made him lunch
and he wanted 5 lunch meat sandwiches.He can eat a whole bag of Doritos
by himself.When I would bake a batch of cookies they only lasted for about
24 hours and were gone.He isn't fat either,he plays football at his school and
lives on a farm.

Hi. I'm nat. I have a boy who's 11 and hasn't hit puberty yet.. But he sure is hungry all the time .. And what's sad is he's allergic to most foods. Like the processed foods with corn syrup and soy in them .. He can't eat. His diet has flipped upside down as well as me and my husband so my son won't feel alone. I don't know what I'll do when he's wanting more and more food, cause this organic food is breaking our bank. At least I got a night time job for now to help ..
Anyway.. Much luck. It seems there are folks on here who have teen boys going through the same thing. My boy is very skinny and I can see his lil ribs and even a six pack which just blows my mind. I'm tiny too so a lot of times I feel he's just tiny like me .. But he eats a lot and then 30 min later he tells me he's hungry ..
Much peace and luck xoxo

NO! you don't say that! NO BAD, NOOOOOO.

for Everyone else;

I do shop at Sams club for just about everything ( somethings you just don't really want to buy bulk of). I spend close to 300$ every 2 weeks ( each payday ). We have cut cost on a few things. I make our laundry det. I can spend 30$ and have enough to last our family of 4 for about 10 months. We don't buy paper towels, we have rags for cleaning up, and cooking and such, and we have cloth napkins for when we eat. ( let me tell you, cloth diapers are literally the greatest thing ever to soak up just about anything )

I am contemplating making bread, instead of buying it. I personally prefer doing it by hand, but I do own a bread machine, so I'll be able to crank out more loaves at a time. Unfortunately it's time consuming. Currently I am in between jobs, and have some time, but I will be getting another job soon (hopefully) and won't be home all day to cook bread.

I LOVE my crockpot and use it often, to make stews and such.

He does yard work, lots of it, most of it actually. I am actually going to have him on the roof today with his dad cleaning gutters.

Thank you everyone who have shared your ideas and your stories.

Here's to hoping that both of us survive this craziness.
