Mom, can I have a snack? How many time a day do we here that? I am trying to solve that problem. I am washing and cleaning all of my fruit as soon as I get home from the market. I put the fruit where it is accessible to the kids. I just discoved these https://www.greenbags.com/?cid=501127. They are amazing! I bought mine at Walgreens for $9.99. Here is a $5/20 coupon that you can use there tomorrow. http://www.walgreens.com/hotbuys/default.jsp.
I also buy the small snack size baggies at the store and divide up the kids favorite munchies. The staples that I always have are: goldfish, Apple Jacks, Cheerios, raisins and nuts, Chex, and Fruit Loops. In a drawer in the fridge I keep pudding cups, yogurt, and jello cups.
The kids still have to ask me for a snack, but they can get it themselves!
