dessert every night? how about a snack before bed.

I feel like the only parent who doesn't do that.

This is a battle between my husband and I. He will eat a cookie or a chocolate bar after dinner almost every night. My daughter now expects dessert. I HATE it. Also the snack before bed thing- I tell her she can have more dinner if she's hungry whereas my husband will give her crackers or something. Drives me nuts!

Desert no. Snack yes, we eat dinner at 430, It's a long time until breakfast. Only fruit or veggies for snack though.

No we rarely have dessert or a snack before bed.

Sure don't.  We don't really have a lot of snacks (dessert wise) to begin with.  Plus giving snacks around bedtime might make it harder for them to go to bed if they are wired, lol.  Birthdays and holidays are pretty much it.

Bedtime snacks are actually healthy.
