The best-known Prader-Willi syndrome symptom is an insatiable desire for food. Children with Prader-Willi always feel as though they are hungry, no matter how much they eat. As a result, they may consistently eat too much to curb their hunger, consuming large portions at mealtime and frequently eating throughout the day. The only way to prevent children with Prader-Willi from becoming overweight is to carefully monitor their food intake, including locking up food and strictly monitoring portion size. Without careful guidance, they can't control their diet.
