Do you let your child graze?

I let dd graze and eat when she wants. The only real set meal we have in the house is dinner. Other than that it's whenever we're hungry.

I let DS graze. He has autism and has a really hard time sitting still. HE has to be up and moving some part of his body. Usually he is flapping his hands or wiggling his toes but flapping of his hands tends to knock a bunch of stuff off the table so I let him get up when he gets antsy. He eats more when he grazes anyways, because he isn't stressing over not being able to move.

When I'm not feeling well or special occasions.

Yup.  All 3 have grazed all their lives, and are lean machines (they are 11-17).  They are pickier eaters than I would like, though.

i, too, only make supper.  It is easier on me, lol.  I do make supper as it  gives me a chance to make sure veggies and protein are on the plate.  My kids can cook a bit, and I think having to fend for themselves during the non-supper hours has encouraged this.

Yes but only on veggies, fresh fruit, low fat cheeses/yogurts, nuts and dry cereal like chex or life.
