Snacks Rule!

This article discusses as why it is good for kids to eat between meals. In fact, "grazing" small healthy snacks throughout the day is a good thing. Young children need to eat more often because they tend to naturally eat smaller portions at meals. It can be hard for a young child to eat enough food at any one sitting to sustain her without the major peaks and dips in energy levels that can occur with long stretches between meals. Not only is nutritious snacking physically beneficial for your child, it's also good for her brain! Research has shown that young children's thinking is improved when they eat several small servings throughout the day, instead of consuming larger meals at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
