Which snack would your child choose? Let me know in the comments below👇🏼
My kids want snacks over meals and because of this dinner time is a real challenge. When I give them 🍽 dinner they’re not hungry, but after the dinner has been cleared they’re hungry for a snack 🍪🥛🤦♀️
So in an attempt to win this daily food battle, I started making my snacks look like meals and I’ve tried to plate them as I would plate their dinner. The snack is the main course and it comes with various sides (mostly fruits and veggies) but I've tried to include a bit of everything, healthy fat, protein and fibre so that they’re getting a balanced meal.
By making "snacks" look more like a meal I'm helping my kids see snacks and meals as the same so that they can hopefully eat and enjoy both the same.
