“A lot of parents don’t notice if their child gains a few pounds-it’s the whole ‘love is blind’ thing. But they will pick up on pants or shirts that suddenly look snug,” notes American Dietetic Association spokesperson Bonnie Taub-Dix, R.D.
What do you do when your kids are cranky? Do you hand over a snack when your kids are upset, stressed or fatigued?. What they may really need is just a hug, some quiet time, or something to drink instead (thirst is often confused for hunger-ditto tiredness). They might also just be bored. Try address the underlying problem before handing over a snack pack, with distraction or just a little one-on-one time.
Is the amount on their plates is close to the amount you have on yours? Kids don’t need adult-sized portions. A good serving size is about the size of the palm of your hand, and that applies to kids too. For snacks, a good, easy-to-remember gauge of a serving is what you can grab with your hand.
