Did you read yesterday’s bedtime tip?
Today’s tip is:
offer a snack
When I first read this, I thought “um, no – you should have a full tummy from dinner.”
But the more I thought about it, the more sense it made.
Babies and kids grow exponentially and I forgot what that felt like until I was pregnant and nursing. Thirst and hunger can hit like a freight train!
So maybe your toddler CAN truly be hungry or thirsty. It is no fun going to bed hungry! So if this is the case, by all means: do a snack. The book suggests milk, turkey, cheese – a healthy snack.
Side note: I have read a lot of books on why adults eat what they eat and want to warn against creating a food crutch. This can come from sugary foods AND savory foods. The goal is to create a feeling without food.
