How many snacks do your kids eat a day?
My kids have 1 snack a day.
2-3.... 2 are usually healthy and one is fun food....I call it fun food instead of junk food
DD is two she has a snack between Breakfast and Lunch and then she has one between lunch and dinner.
DS is four and he has one between lunch and dinner.
Sometimes one before bed for both of them depending on how much dinner they ate. (usually a fruit or string cheese.
So dd gets 2-3 and DS gets 1-2
19 month old has one between each meal. But she also eats 2 lunches or dinners depending on what way you look at it. lol
My older kids can eat whenever they want no permission required. in school the have 2 snacks and their lunch and one when they get home and one before bedtime or so.
None. Our 5 year old won't eat dinner if she's given anything for a snack in the afternoon. The 1 year old seems to do well with just 3 meals a day so I see no reason to even start the snack thing with her.
