1. why do you have this food in the house- you found out it is not good for you it isn't any better for the family either.. we women tend to transfer bad habits over onto our family when we can't do it to ourselfs..
2. mothers tend to be busy from the moment they open eyes it makes sense to eat more in the mornings to avoid getting over hungry.. I had to ADHD toddlers their energy could have me like a dead battery by lunchtime when both over active and on their toes..
3 small er main meals and use your fruit and milk products as snacks. I get hungry before bed so have 2 fruits and ½ of my yogurt products make into a dessert..
4. quality of the food- if you eat alot of processed foods it is not going to carry you as well as making everything from the base up and it will consume your calorie limit really fast combined with not getting enough exercise..
5. if it is boredom eating grab a pram- stuff the kids in it and go for a long walk.. the fresh air and the change of scenery simmer down even my two rug rats back then..
