Still control the portions...

I know that my 9 1/2 year old will sit and eat a bag of Goldfish - If I handed him the bag of Goldfish.. I still portion it out, or he knows to do the same.. In a snack bowl... My rule is "a handful". On most snacks it's the same... If you're still hungry after then you can have fruit.. and there's no limit on fruit..

A lot of times I find my kids get snacky when they're bored.. or just watching TV.. or having some down time.. Just like anyone else..
