Re: kids eating all day...
UGH My kids were driving me crazy with this too. We now have designated snack time--which they do not get if they do not eat meals--I am not a short order cook, you eat what we eat or you don't. We also have a fruit bowl where they can have whatever they want, whenever they want; but I put it away before I start getting meals ready.
