"Children, in particular, have small stomachs, so they need to eat frequently," she said. "Plan a snack to take the edge off hunger, but not spoil the appetite for the upcoming meal."
Procter suggested fresh or dried fruit, whole grain crackers, cheese, veggies with low-calorie dip or nuts as healthy, yet satisfying snacks.
"Supervise children when eating and particularly when eating in the car," said Procter, who also is a registered dietitian and coordinator of the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program in the state.
