you described my 5 year old. she goes to school so sher doesnt eat breakfast at home. they eat breakfast at 830am then around 1130 they eat lunch and eat snack around 2. she gets home off the bus screaming shes hungry but doest bug them at school about being hungry. she she screams "hungry" until i get supper cooked. we eat supper between 5 and 6. my kids are cut off drinks at 630 because they refuse to go potty in the middle of the night. on weekends when both kids are at home they get up around 730ish and scream hungry from then until bedtime. I feed them breakfast,lunch,snack, and supper. I tell them to go play outside when its nice outside but they refuse. they want to be up under me 24/7 but then wants to watch TV all day. i usually give in the to TV because i get sick of them whinning about wanting to eat or watch tv. I have a limited budget when i buy groceries so I cant buy a whole lot of food. do i need to get a menu and try it for them for when i buy groceries next? if i fix something different for them they we wont be able to eat because of limited budget. i cook alot of chicken and they LOVE spagetti but i cant cook spagetti every night of the week. When my 5year old also eats she wants to go back for 2nds and thirds. shes constantly wanting to eat. my husband is the same way and when i say something to him about eatting all the time he gets mad and says " i buy the food i can eat if i want". I deal with these kids everyday. he works shift work so alot of days he never sees them. i honestly dont know what to doAnswer Question

here's one link with snack ideas. There are others if you google it. But you want healthy low calorie snacks. I noticed popcorn on the list. it's a great snack but it needs to be salt free, butter free.........just plain pop corn. Good luck!!
