Are you hungry again?

 

Eating is something we all do!   Most children eat three meals a day and most kids snack.  Why do kids snack?  Because kids need to refuel their body, especially when they are active - like playing games, running, walking, jumping, swinging, etc.  Everything you do takes energy and eating correctly helps you make energy.  Without energy - your body and your brain get tired.

 

A good rule of thumb with snacks though, is if you aren’t hungry, don’t eat and don’t snack too close to meal-times.  It’s very important to eat your well balanced meal. It’s also never good to eat food because you are bored or just watching television. Over-doing on snacks is never a good idea.
