A bowl of un­salted nuts or some dried fruit may tempt chil­dren. If un­healthy snacks are avail­able, chances are that’s what they will eat. They may ig­nore the healthy snacks to be­gin with, but even lit­tle ones can’t ig­nore a rum­bling tummy. Drink wa­ter. As a grownup, when I think I’m hun­gry I al­ways ques­tion whether it’s thirst. More of­ten than not I am just thirsty. So when my kids say they’re hun­gry I al­ways ask them to have a glass of wa­ter and most of the time it works. Don’t give up. It isn’t al­ways easy, but don’t think it has to be all or noth­ing ev­ery time. Lit­tle changes can make the big­gest dif­fer­ences and, af­ter all, nearly ev­ery­thing starts with baby steps.
