No. School is out at 3. We eat as a family nightly once my husband gets home. Dinner is between 530 and 6.

No, she gets out of school at 2:10 or 11:50, depending on the day. She does have a snack when she gets home which is essentially a second lunch. It is always very healthy.

Dinner?? At 3. Negative. They have a light snack.. Crackers, veggie slices, a fruit... Fruit snacks( if their lucky), and dinner is at 6 sharp.

if I fed them right after school, they'd be loading up on junk at "dinner time"

Is she a bus kid? Just curious. Mine are out 3:35pm m-th, 1:55pm Friday. But we are a block from school, so, they are home about 5 mins later. Lol no, dinner isn't ready. Heck, if I don't feel like it, I have hubby bring something home, or we fend for ourselves. :) if my kids weren't home until 4:30pm, maybe. :) my kids are always hungry when they get home. They snack when they get home. :) your pic looks so much like one of dd's besties. :)

No. We get home at 4, and we eat between 6-6:30. DS has a snack when we get home (usually fruit or veggies and some crackers).

They get out too early for that. They snack on fruit, yogurt and granola.

Nope.  We usually have a healthy snack for her like fresh fruit or pretzels.   If we ate that early, she would be hungry for rest of night.   We typically eat dinner between 5 and 6, at latest 7pm.    4:30pm is too early for dinner.   Why not have string cheese and fruit or something she could have a snack after school.  Even a cup of yogurt would be fine.  What does she eat for lunch time and what time is lunch?   DD got lucky that lunch is at noon and that is halfway through her school day.
