CrunchyLutheranMommy Posted January 19, 2014 Share Posted January 19, 2014 I've been reading through this part of the forum, so helpful! We just finished up Day 10 of our very first W30 and feeling great! Our entire family has been 100% compliant so far (although tomorrow I think our daughter will very likely have a splurge because mommy got the wrong kind of larabar at the store for a special situation coming up and I can't really go back on it now! Four year olds have very good memories...)ANYWAY, so my real question is, our daughter has been doing very well, but most days she is just hungry ALL DAY. All she does is eat! I understand that this can be perfectly normal at her age, and we have been letting her eat whenever she wants as long as she eats what's on her plate at meals and the food is compliant. I figure if she's eating meat and veggies all day long, great! But I'm wondering how far I should go with this? Usually she eats a big dinner and goes to bed a couple hours later without needing a snack. Although she is always ravenous by morning! The last couple of nights she has asked to eat right before I put her down to bed. As in "Hey, lets go get in bed!" and she replies "But I need a snack to help me sleep better."I know this is discouraged for adults, and I am not a parent who particularly encourages bedtime snacking for the littles so... where did this come from? Should I somehow try to prevent this from becoming a regular occurrence or not worry about it too much and just give her food when she asks, even if it's right before bed?
