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.
