My boys eat a lot. This summer I have been trying to make snacks easier for them to get on their own. I felt like they were constantly asking me for a snack or a drink. Here is the snack shelf in the refrigerator, and the snack bin that I put in the cupboard where they can reach. Now they know where to look when they are hungry. I have also kept their cups filled and in the refrigerator for drinks. So far so good. They have really enjoy picking out their own snacks.
