When the kids come home from school, they are always hungry so I allow them one snack to hold them over until dinner. Snack can consist of anything from about 5 crackers and cheese, a piece of fruit, a yogurt, or a bowl of soup. I think this should be enough to hold them over but my 9 year old complains that she is still hungry after eating what I think is a sizeable snack. I don't want her to ruin her appetite, but where do I draw the line?

maybe a bit of a more hearty snack such as a sliced apple with peanut butter and adjust the amount served for dinner.I have 4 in age between 12 and 26-he is self supporting on his own -but some needed to eat smaller more frequently and others are the three main meals type.Different metabolisms.They all sit and eat as a family at dinner and breakfast.

I always had dinner ready by after school for such occasion and if they are hungry again by the time bed time comes around then it's the snack with a glass of milk.
