I strongly recommend that parents provide a meal schedule or routine and decide when their kids will eat. ⠀ ⠀ When kids eat a lot of times throughout the day, it increases their risk of cavities and can lead to them either eating too much or not enough for their body. It makes it harder for them to listen to when they are hungry and full. Eating on a schedule though, leads to better eating and less picky eating! ⠀ Want more deets about eating schedules? I wrote all about it on my blog.
