Snack Bag

Snacktime was out of control at our house.  I would get the girls a snack whether it would be animal crackers, etc and they would fight over it and ask for more constantly.  I also wanted to give my kids some independance and keep their snack to a reasonable portion.  I finally had to institute the "Snack Bag".  It is a big Ziploc bag that they can reach in a lower cabinet.  They must ask first but twice a day, they can go get an individual portioned snack.  When it is gone, snack time is over.  I keep it stocked with mostly Trader Joe's or Annie's organic treats like fruit leather, cereal bars, or cheddar crackers.  It is one more thing that makes our house a little more organized and liveable.
