What would you do?

My sons are 1 and 2. They decided to take early naps today (yay!) and just now woke up. This means that they slept right through lunch. Neither is asking for food or saying they're hungry. Should I fix a snack, or make them their whole lunch? Supper is in about 2 1/2 hours anyway. Would just a snack suffice? I don't wanna feel like I'm starving my kids.

I'd just give them a snack if they will be eating dinner soon.  They won't eat dinner if you feed them a whole meal now.

If they were hungry they would tell you but if you feel like you HAVE to make them something, give them a snack.

I would feed them lunch.

My DD sometimes switches her schedule and sleeps through lunch. Everything is usually just about 1 hr. later than usual. The next day it goes back to normal.

Thank you ladies! I ended up making a kind of snack-y lunch. One ds wanted pb sandwich, and one wanted ritz crackers and cheese, so they each got half a sandwich and crackers and cheese.
