1. With all this cold weather across the country, what are you wearing today to keep warm?

2. Do you pre-heat your car before you go into it on cold mornings (either by going outside and starting it or remote starter)?

3. What was/is for lunch today?

So now snacking all day instead of sitting down to a healthy lunch is ok. BAER.</span></strong></p>

I didn't say snacking all day, I said many small meals a day and "nobody" said anything about not sitting down during those times.  

No, YOU didn't say snacking, MHM DID. 

You DID say about sitting down as you have stated a few times that you don't find it healthy to eat on the run. You have stated that you think it is wrong not to have a lunch period in high school.

Why are you backpedaling today?

Yes. Many babies and toddlers, if not most, tend to graze rather than eat three meals. We as parents teach them that grazing is wrong. But if they thrive on snacking/grazing rather than 3 big meals, why change it?

Small MEALS is one thing, PKA has stated that it is wrong that my dd and others don't have a lunch period. Sitting down and having a healthy nutritious lunch.

Actually, you started this by debating my eating habits. Please elaborate on why my eating habits are setting an example for my kids that I should not set.

<blockquote>My dd DOES eat lunch. It is not in a cafeteria, no. I eat lunch. Sometimes it is while working through lunch. What is the difference? Many people have food on the run. That doesn't mean they do it every.day of the year nor are making unhealthy choices. </strong></p><p style="font-size:13px; text-align:left"><strong>Why is this poster not making bad choices for not sitting and eating a healthy lunch and not snacking all day&gt; Why is this poster not an example to her children of her eating habits?</strong></p>

Since you are the one who called my eating habits into question, it is on you to explain why I "am" making bad choices. :)

<<You must have missed the entire other thread about PKA insisting that parents should be teaching their kids about healthy eating and how horrible it is for my school to allow kids to eat in class and not have a lunch period. >>

Eating small meals throughout the day is healthy eating and not taking a break to eat those meals is not good.  You take a break for lunch, even going home to eat your meals, other than your bias debating, why are you disagreeing with me?

<<What lead? They can eat something healthy but NOT the same. Why are you not understanding this?>>

The lead of eating a family meal together, a healthy meal together.  They can, but do they?  

And again, as I have said time and time again YES THEY DO.

<<Oh you have, go look at the other thread. I don't think eating meals on the run ALL THE TIME is healthy either. I don't and neither does she.>>

I have, then please quote where I said she doesn't eat lunch.  I didn't say anything about on the run "ALL THE TIME", already going to the extreme this morning, lol. 

So just eating on the run SOMETIMES is wrong? I am not going to extremes. YOU are making no sense in what you are saying. So now eating on the run SOMETIMES is ok? Snacking for lunch is SOMETIMES ok? Not having a lunch period is SOMETIMES ok? Stop backpedaling as it is getting really old.

<<She said snacks NOT meals.... I don't take a "lunch" normally, I eat small snacks all day long.>>

OH she did, sorry I thought she said meals.  But where did she say that she wasn't sitting during those snacks?  Eating small meals throughout the day is quite healthy, do you not know this?

Yes, small MEALS throughout the day is healthy. She did NOT say meals, she said SNACKS. Follow the thread. Look back and don't just assume if you are trying to make a point. Thanks.

Eating small nutritious meals throughout the day is a long-known healthy process.

Again, you will have to read the other thread. THIS is the only reason you were dragged into this.

SNACKS, SNACKS. Stop saying MEALS. NO ONE said MEALS.

Yes, I think meals should be a break, even small ones throughout the day, that hasn't changed.  I think it's wrong and unhealthy for schools to not have a lunch break in any grade.

<<Why are you backpedaling today?>>

I'm not backpedaling on anything today, my comments are the same today as they were yesterday.  mhm127, never said anything about not sitting and enjoying the small snacks throughout the day, so I don't see an issue with small snacks and/or meals through out the day.  I see a problem with a school that has kids changing classes every 42 minutes and doesn't require them to take a break for lunch, instead making them eat in class while they are trying to learn, take notes and etc.  Everyone needs a break during the day, big or small, they nee breaks during the day to refocus.  How can you not know this?

If you ate all that in one sitting, it would be, imo, a pretty healthy, balanced meal.   So, spreading that out across the day is also healthy. 

Snacking is only "bad" when snacking either 1) increases one's calorie intake to an unhealthy level or 2) are junk snacks.
