Do you share your food? If the kids have been fed and you sit down with your lunch, do they want it?
I do not share my food except for with dd, who is 16 months. My older kids are notorious for eating their food (or not) and then asking for a snack or a bite of mine 5 minutes later. It bugs me but not Dh, he shares.
ETA I allow them to choose how much they eat at mealtime but snacks are at a set time or they would graze all day and never sit to eat a meal. If they choose not to eat, they wait.
