If there's one thing about most kids, it is that they are always hungry.. am I right? Sienna is constantly asking for snacks or saying she is hungry and needs more energy to play (yeah right!). A while a go, I came across the idea of a 'help yourself' snack drawer and decided to give it a go with Sienna.
The idea is to have a drawer full of snacks that she can help herself too when it is snack time. I still have the control over what she is eating as I put the snacks in there but she feels like she has the control as she is allowed to choose and help herself. She loves making decisions so this has been great for her.
It's been working really well and I feel like it will be something that is really handy for when we have the baby as well..If I'm busy and she needs a snack, she is able to get it herself so I don't have to stop what I'm doing.
