Punishment Question...

My 10 year old wanted his snack (crackers) and wanted to play wii..I told him eat, and then play..  I do not want the mess in my LV.  I heard crunching and asked.."are you eating?" , he told me no and it sounded like it could be the controller, I heard it again, looked over, he was eating???

Just curious, how would you punish?
