I also think that the type of parent (anxious? Controlling food? “I’m cold so my kids need to wear extra sweaters”?) who would add extra food between meals because babies and children “need it” might be the types of adults who model over-eating, encourage eating when not hungry, or using food for comfort and soothing ... and end up have children with a higher risk of obesity.

When we don’t offer highly refined, sugar-and-fat-added, or “flavoured” foods (be it so-called natural flavours or not, the intensity of flavouring trips the body into cravings) experience with little ones (18 foster sweeties over the years) is that they tend not to eat if not hungry.
