DD has a snack at school at about 5 pm and we eat dinner between 6:30-7:15. DD normally eats a decent dinner - occassionally she refuses what I've made and I'll give her another decent quick option - yogurt, cheese, crackers, ham, etc. w/ some fruit or veggies. If she's really slow eating, I'll remind her that this is it for eating and that normally gets her refocused. When she's finished, I'll ask her if she wants more - most of the time she says no, but sometimes she'll ask for more and I give it to her.
Bedtime is 8/8:15. She has very occassionally (like 1x a month) complained about being hungry right before/at bedtime and asked for milk or cheerios. These have normally been days she hasn't eaten much dinner or we've been runnign around all day and she probably hasn't eaten as much as normal. But, now, I think its becoming a "thing" where she will eat a decent amount of dinner, but still ask for a snack at bedtime.
Does anyone else have this situation? What do you do? I don't want to be inconsistent and give her a pre-bed snack sometimes, but then not others - kwim?
