If your kid is hungry, get him to take a nap.

People eat more if they need to sleep.

Kids, too.

Explanations smack of "Just So" stories, but it makes sense:  10,000 years ago, if you weren't getting enough sleep, you were under severe stress and probably in danger.  Needed to eat to keep your strength up.  Because humans probably slept 10 hours a day or more, normally.  Just laying around.

So, if your kid is eating too much, get him to sleep more.  And you are hungry, take a nap.
