What is your favorite covert snacking method?

When you want to eat something you don't want to share with your LO, what is your favorite strategy?

Right now it is "rest time" and I am having some chocolate cake before it is time for DD to be out of her room.

After bed. I hardly eat when they eat, so I don't feel bad sucking up all the chocolate

Other- hide food above the washing machine and snack when they're distracted "folding" in another room.

There are lots of things I eat that I try to avoid giving my kids for as long as possible, especially sweets. So we wait til they are in bed, because they always want what we are having. They are 1 and 3.

Re: What is your favorite covert snacking method?

If my older son (6) is home from school, I wait until he's in bed or distracted by the Wii or the TV. If he's at school, I'm free to snack at will, at least until the baby is old enough to notice and rat me out The baby generally needs to be nursed to sleep, so I take advantage of that time to sneak a snack up to the bedroom to consume after he's asleep, since the door is closed and brother & Daddy know we're not to be disturbed.

I am the lone one at the bottom of the poll. I am such a goodie two shoes.

That said, I will eat ice cream after they have gone to bed, but it's not because they didn't get any earlier. It's so I can enjoy it in the quiet and realize I'm eating something.
