I hide snacks from my kids - do you do things like this?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Whenever I buy a snack I like, the kids always seem to eat that one first, and leave their icky snacks that I don't like but they supposedly LOVE in the pantry, so I started hiding the snacks I buy for myself so they can't have them and if they ever see me eating them, I tell them that's all there was, knowing they can't find my stash.

Do you hide snacks from your kids? Do you do other stuff like this just so you can enjoy something yourself without them taking it all or ruining your moment?

No, I don't hide food.  I just tell him that it's mine and not to eat it.  They listen.

I just hide candy. Not because I want it for myself, I just don't want to hear them ask for it constantly if they see it.

Yup. I enjoy really good chocolate and they will gobble it up like its Hershey's if I let them.

I have my candy drawer in my desk in my room. DS (4) knows it's there but he doesn't sneak anything out of it. He knows to ask me first.

 Yes.  But DD13 can sniff them out still.  She has a nose like a blood hound, I swear she can smell chocolate covered raisins from 10 miles away.

I don't hide anything, but we have a snack drawer. My grandkids know they can't just get into it, they have to ask permission first. I don't eat sweets so they know its all for them :)
