Is It Possible for Kids to Stop Snacking?

A recent study found that childhood obesity rates have increased in the past 14 years, despite a focus and push even from the White House.

Not that all snacks are bad, as healthy snacks can head off hunger meltdowns in toddlers or keep an active kid well fueled.  Is it possible for kids to stop snacking?

Here are a few simple tips that they probably won’t even notice.  Keep an eye on the number of snacks you eat, and you’re more likely to cut down, which is good for your kids.

Cut up regular sized chocolate bars, and give them a little piece instead of a whole bar.  Another great idea:  If your kids ask for more snacks after you think they’ve had enough, they might be thirsty instead of hungry.  Try offering them water or low-fat skim milk.
