Mom Shares Smart Trick to Keep Kids From Snacking All Day While Home

If your child has plowed through the reserve boxes of Goldfish and every last clementine in a matter of hours versus days and there's no way you're heading back to Costco for a replenishment already, you're not alone. Thankfully, an Indiana mom named Jennifer Hallstrom was in the same boat and came up with a smart solution. 

In a Facebook post, Hallstrom said she kept seeing parents lament that their kids want to eat all day while they're home.

The mom of an 11-, 7-, and 2-year-old then presented her fix:

"Each child has their own colored basket. In the morning, I put their snacks in it for the day, when those snacks are gone they don’t get any more. It makes them stop and think do I really need a snack? I also put their cup for the day in there because I’m not washing 50 cups a day! Hahaha!"
