How many times a day does your child ask for a snack? We’re betting its more than 2 or 3 times. We are even betting its likely in 10+ range.
The “Can I have a snack?” stage is a crucial (and trying) time in parenting. It can form our children’s snacking habits for life- and children love snacks. Preschoolers especially will eat them every hour on the hour if they could, but as parents we know better- and when we have to say no – the tears flow. —Oh, The insanity.
So how do we manage snack time?
The Snacktime Survival Kit includes:
- 1 colorful wooden clockboard containing 1 working clock and 3 interactive clocks
- A deck of 33 snack cards, which contains photos of fun & healthy snacks on one side, and nutrition information to learn about on the back.
(*gluten-free and other special dietary needs snack packs are being worked on.)
You and your child chose 3 healthy snacks for the day (I recommend picking out 5 before going grocery shopping & rotating those for a week)
Set the 3 smaller clocks to your child’s snack time
Enjoy playing the matching game What child doesn’t love the Matching Game? To smaller children, that is essentially what the clocks will be– AT FIRST. They will match their snack clock to the working clock on the top to know when it is snacktime has arrived.
Teach them how to tell time. The SnackTime Survival Kit has a secret hidden added bonus (at least I think it does)- and that it teaches time on a real clock. After a few weeks, my son was coming in saying things like “Its not snacktime yet- its only 10 and 15 o’clock”. It’s a definite start- right?
