Re: kids eating all day...
I have 4 boys (5 1/2, 4 1/2, 3 1/2, 1 1/2)And we do the same as Melinda. Meals are scheduled. Break, lunch, snack, dinner. That's it. If they chose to not eat enough of their meal to last them to the next meal, than they're out of luck. We've always done this. So there is no whining or asking for food. They all no the rules and everyone eats accordingly.
