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.
