  • OMGoodness.....yes!!! No matter how much they eat for their main meals they are snacking all day. And with 4 kiddos in my home I cannot keep food in my house. And my teenage boys would eat cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner.....and snack if I'd let them!!

  • They want to but I don't allow it. Snacking too much leads to overweight children and sets up bad habits for overeating as an adult. If they have their balanced meals a snack or two a day should be enough. A lot of times children will want to snack because they are bored, just like us moms.

  • They're allowed 1 snack around 330-4 pm, then depending on what we're doing after dinner, they may have another. They're not big snackers unless they're bored.
