Little Foodie and Snacking
Little Foodie eats pretty well at breakfast each morning and after being in the pool for a few hours she eats like a wolf at lunch time but what we have noticed lately is that Little Foodie is only picking at her dinner. What could the cause be.... snacking before dinner? I am a firm believer in the fact that kids need an afternoon snack, as an adult I know that grumpy, tired feeling that comes on in the late afternoon. Little Foodie usually has a small snack around 3:30pm, some cheese or a little bit of fruit etc. always something healthy but with our more relaxed summer schedule she has been snacking later in the day which is leaving her with not much of an appetite at dinner. Little Foodie and I had a conversation about the problem and we decided that she couldn't have any snacks after 3:30pm. Let's just hope that I can remember to stick to this during our vacation!
