Tip Tuesday

Pre-pack some snacks that you can easily grab and go. That will keep you from munching on junk or having to stop by the fast food place.

Invest in some snack bags.  You know, like sandwich bags but much smaller.  Or you can use the sandwich bags.  Check the labels on the foods you have at home and see what the serving size is, then measure that amount out and put in the bag.  So, when you are headed out the door and your stomach is rumbling, you can just grab a bag of pretzels or whatever.  This will help your (and your kids) with portion control.  I like to keep a few bags of goldfish or pretzels in my car for the ride home from school when Big Sister swears she's starving.

That way, *I* control how much she eats, not her.
