Mum reveals how she stops kids 'eating cupboards dry' with simple snack basket – and parents are amazed
AS we're sure all mums will agree, sometimes it feels as though the snacks we've bought to last the entire week disappear within the hour.
Sound familiar? Then you might just want to bag a basket (or two) and listen closely.
Over lockdown, mum Casey Williams struggled to stop her children's constant snacking – and so decided to take a stand.
Posting on her TikTok channel, the savvy mum explained how she set her two eldest children up with a "snack basket" which encouraged them to pace themselves through the day.
She said: "If your kids are like mine and will literally just eat when they're stuck indoors, then this is a really good idea.
"What you're gonna do is put snacks and basically tell them that these are their snacks for the day."
"And if they decide to eat it all, then they eat it all. But that's all they get for the whole day."
Along with putting their lunch in the baskets, Casey added a packet of crisps, a Mini Roll, some cookies, a cupcake, a Fruit Roll-Up, some fruit, crackers and two yoghurt pots.
"I think it's a really good hack," she added. "And my kids ended up leaving one thing in there yesterday."
The post has racked up over 127,000 likes and 4,000 shares on TikTok from parents who labelled it a "game-changer".
