We all love to indulge in snacks every now and again. According to our recent survey, so do our children! How do people feel about snack foods and what kind of snacks are they providing their families? We were curious to hear more about SheSpeaks members' thoughts on this topic. We conducted a study recently and below are some of the key findings.

I'm not shocked by the results. Two of my kids are very picky, so I'm happy when they eat anything! If I had my way they would be allowed to eat them like 3 times a week :)
My kids eat more snacks than they do on there regular meals. Which I could get them to eat more healthy snacks than the junk food.
My child is a major snacker too, but since she's pretty much a grazer when she does have a meal I've had to adjust her snacks to be healthier.
Healthy snacks come first and then they can eat something else.
My kids have always been picky. I only allow snacks in the afternoon, between lunch and dinner.
My son is picky and I give him packaged snacks...
Sounds about right!
Guilty! But I'm doing much better now a days. I buy way more fruits and veggies and less packaged snacks. I still splurge on some things to balance it out.. Ice Cream is a staple in my house along with fresh fruits.
oh my this is TOTALLY me!!
I have ten kids ranging from 8 to 28. Eight still live at home. If you don't buy unhealthy snacks then they won't eat unhealthy snacks. I don't buy it and can't afford to buy it so they don't have it!
My kids are picky and I often feel guilty about the food that they snack on.
my kid does eat pre-packaged snacks but all the other stuff isn't true for me. I snack on fruits and veggies myself so my kid has no problem snacking on them too.
I have one healthy and one unhealthy kid snacker.
